Findings from a study co-authored by School of Environment and Natural Resources doctoral student Marisol Becerra and faculty member Dr. Kerry Ard and are featured in the November 29th edition of Physicians Briefing. The article, “Disparities in Environmental Exposures to Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals and Diabetes Risk in Vulnerable Populations” in the journal Diabetes Care reviews the evidence linking unequal exposures to Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals with racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic diabetes disparities in the U.S. and social forces promoting these disparities; and explores potential interventions.
