|About||The Center strives to understand and reduce the risks of air pollution exposure to children’s health in California's San Joaquin Valley.|
The Children’s Health & Air Pollution Study-San Joaquin Valley (CHAPS) strives to understand and reduce the risks of air pollution exposure to children’s health in the San Joaquin Valley, California.
To accomplish this mission, we investigate the exposures on youth during critical growth stages; assess the effects on development, immune health, and inflammation; test how a child’s exposure to vehicular pollution is connected to where and how they live; and sustain active partnerships with community organizations that prioritize air pollution, environment, and health in their work.
|Description||CHAPS is a partnership between University of California, Berkeley; Stanford University, Sonoma Technology, Inc.; California State University, Fresno; and University of San Francisco-Fresno. CHAPS is funded by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.|
