PHI’s Child Health and Development Studies is not only advancing groundbreaking research on how environment influences health, but they’re also developing and testing best practices for reporting this information back to study participants.

300 women tested for chemicals like pesticides and flame retardants

PHI’s Child Health and Development Studies is not only advancing groundbreaking research on how environment influences health, but they’re also developing and testing best practices for reporting this information back to study participants.

In one project, CHDS is testing the blood levels of 150 African-American and 150 non-African-American women for chemicals like pesticides and flame retardants. The findings—for individuals and for the group as a whole—will be shared with participants, allowing researchers to assess best practices and impact of personal report-back.

The project is a novel collaboration between researchers and cohort members who function as the community partner via their membership in a Participant Advisory Council. Its findings will be used to help shape other biomonitoring report-back approaches across the country.
