Healthy Children and Environments Study

National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Logo

This randomized control study is designed to evaluate a child care health consultant-led integrated pest management (IPM) intervention in 88 child care centers serving socio-economically and ethnically diverse preschool-age children in four California counties. The goal of the intervention is to reduce the exposure to pesticides. Changes in IPM knowledge, policies, practices, pests, and pesticide exposure (measured in dust and by wristbands) will be assessed.
