The NIEHS/EPA Children’s Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Centers have recently released their Children’s Centers Impact Report.

Research Outcomes

Between 2015 and 2022, the Center for Research on Early Childhood Exposure and Development in Puerto Rico (CRECE) studied how mixtures of environmental exposures and other factors affect the health and development of infants and children living in the heavily-contaminated island of Puerto Rico.

Since 2016, CRECE has participated in the NIH’s Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) program. ECHO unites mother and child cohorts across the United States to better understand the impacts of environmental exposures on children’s health. More information about the CRECE cohort’s involvement, including links to recent ECHO publications involving CRECE researchers, are available on NIH RePORTER.
