Dr. Mercedes Bravo's Research is highlighted in The Atlantic

A study by Children's Environmental Health Initiative researchers Mercedes Bravo, Rebecca Anthopolos and Provost Marie Lynn Miranda, is highlighted in The Atlantic. Dr. Bravo's study demonstrated that long term exposure to fine particulate air pollution was associated with racial residential segregation, with more highly segregated areas suffering higher levels of exposure.

Highly Resolved Spatial Scale Geocoding

Geocoding, the process of converting address information into latitude and longitude coordinates, is key to gaining a better characterization of associations between public health exposures and outcomes. Traditionally, public health data has been analyzed on large geographic scales such as county, ZIP code, or Census tract. By utilizing highly resolved spatial scales of population-level birth and death certificate data, relationships between the data and environmental and social exposures previously hidden by these large areal units become apparent.
