Featured Studies:

Pregnancy and Work Study

The Pregnancy and Work Study is characterizing the types of hazardous chemical exposures pregnant women encounter through their jobs and their hobbies, through the use of a brief self-administered questionnaire. The project will also produce recommendations on incorporating key questions on occupational exposures into the prenatal intake process.
