The Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health (the Center) conducts community-based research in the United States and overseas to study the health effects of prenatal and early postnatal exposures to common urban pollutants, with the aim of preventing environmentally related disease in children.  We apply the results of our research to interventions that reduce exposure to toxic pollutants; a community education campaign to increase environmental health awareness among local residents, parents, health professionals and educators; and informing public interest groups, elected officials, and other policymakers who can shape policies to improve the environmental health status of low-income communities.
