This concluding chapter discusses the implications of this book's study, highlighting the need for future research, interdisciplinary training of undergraduate and graduate students, and funding opportunities to support community-based collaborative enterprises that reshape science and policy making. The methodological and theoretical approaches discussed in this book provide new ways of understanding contested-illness struggles within the broader field of health social movements, particularly those movements focused on environmental health. To expand the study of contested illnesses, future research will need to analyze the complexities of a contested illness in which a suspected environmental exposure, instead of leading directly to disease, leads to a physical condition associated with a wide range of negative health outcomes.
