The basics of this study are related to the geologic profile of the western United States, which has elevated levels of arsenic and uranium in the soil which contaminate the groundwater. The root cause of the heavy metels have to do with the sandstone and limestone bedrock which is typical of the Colorado Plateau.
Community Environmental Concerns
The goal of this study is to formally evaluate if a community health worker intervention can effectively reduce workplace exposures in marginalized small businesses to hazardous chemicals. Through face-to-face encounters, this study will increase the capacity of workers with limited education, literacy & computer skills to understand workplace hazards and effective control options to reduce exposures and prevent occupational disease.
The adverse effects of environmental exposures on the reproductive system have been recognized as significant threat to human health. Through the addition of new faculty and formation of collaborations among them, SWEHSC is now positioned to make significant contributions in this field. The center now counts with expertise in descriptive and mechanistic reproductive toxicology (Craig) and the reproductive and gynecological health epidemiology (Farland).
