Maternal And Developmental Risks from Environmental and Social Stressors Center for Environmental Health Disparities

The MADRES Center for Environmental Health Disparities was established in 2015 to investigate the cumulative effects of chemical pollutants and psychosocial, behavioral, and built environment risk factors, during and after pregnancy, on maternal and infant health outcomes. The MADRES Center facilitates research efforts to identify opportunities for policy, clinical, and programmatic interventions to increase environmental and health equity for Los Angeles communities disproportionately impacted by obesity and environmental chemical pollutants.
