The Environmental Exposures and Health Across the Nation (ENVISION) Research Group brings together researchers that seek to clarify the impacts of environmental exposures on acute severe morbidity in urban and rural regions across the United States using novel exposure characterization metrics.
In particular, we aim to:
1) compare and summarize short-term associations between air pollutants, heat, infectious disease activity, and other environmental exposures with cause-specific emergency department (ED) visits and hospital admissions (HA)
2) examine and explain heterogeneity of observed associations across locations considering factors such as air pollution mixtures, climate and seasonality, and population susceptibility and vulnerability (e.g., age, sex, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status).
