Book Description:
The "Break the Cycle" program has been an annual academic event since 2005, recruiting students from many different disciplines and departments at different universities across the United States and the world, to break the cycle of environmental health disparities. The chapters in this book range from descriptive narratives to analyses and intervention studies. They cover everything from considerating prenatal vulnerabilities of the fetus, to the outcomes of premature newborn infants through personal, family, community and social perspectives, to grandparents who are taking care of their grandchildren with disabilities; they look at health, nutrition, education and community responsibility. Most importantly, these chapters inform the reader about children’s environmental health disparities, and provide solutions to reduce and eliminate these health disparities. (Imprint: Nova)
