As an affiliated organization, Greenleaf Communities was established in 2011 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization to conduct primary research and apply the findings in ways that reduce environmentally-mediated causes of disease (e.g., cancer). Environmental impacts on water and food security, together with events related to climate change, are likely to influence population movements and exacerbate disease, adversely affecting human health. Greenleaf Communities recruits and leads multidisciplinary teams of scientists from academia, government and industry, plus technologists and community leaders working across disciplines, to change practices and eliminate toxic exposure from food, water, air and urban environments.
