Duke University

The Duke University Southern Center on Environmentally-Driven Disparities in Birth Outcomes attempts to understand how environmental, social, host, and genetic factors interact to affect the fetus and newborn. These stressors include children living in situations where there is deteriorating housing, poor access to health care, poor schools, high unemployment, high crime, high poverty, homelessness, poor nutrition, and increased environmental exposures to toxic chemicals. They study normal birth outcomes, racial disparities in birth outcomes, and the effect of prenatal environmental exposure and neonatal respiratory health.
