The centerpiece of the Center is the Community-Based Prevention Research Project, "Growing Up Healthy in East Harlem". The goal of this project is to reduce exposures of inner-city children and their families to pesticides in city housing through the technique of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and to reduce exposure to PCBs through dietary modification.Publications and Presentations:
