More than half of the world’s population relies on open fire cooking pits, but these indoor cook stoves can result in extremely high levels of indoor air pollution. The goal of this study is to assess the effectiveness of stove interventions to reduce air pollution exposure.
The mission of the LEAD Center is to conduct research into the lifecourse health
consequences of early and later life exposures that increase the risk
and accelerate the onset of adiposity (obesity) and diabetes.
This center is one of six Integrated Food Safety Centers of
Excellence designated by the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention. Our team is dedicated to identifying and developing model
foodborne disease surveillance and outbreak response.
