Community Groups

Environmental exposures can take place at home, at work, indoors, outdoors, and through our food or drink. As researchers and community members, we at CERCH conduct studies to learn how environmental exposures can impact the health of children and families – especially how environmental exposures may affect the way children grow and learn.

Prenatal Kiosk:

Click here to go directly to the Prenatal Environmental Health Kiosk, an interactive multimedia learning tool for pregnant Spanish-speaking women.

  • Visit, use, and/or share our computerized Prenatal Kiosk! The interactive touch-screen Prenatal Environmental Health Kiosk is a self-guided, computer-based multimedia tool designed for pregnant Spanish-speaking women (English coming soon). Users of all literacy levels learn about environmental exposures and related health concerns, as well as ways for families to protect themselves from exposures. You can also download the Prenatal Kiosk to be used on your computer (click here for Mac, or here for PC). If you know people who might want to use the Prenatal Kiosk, here is a flyer that can be shared.

Exposure and Health Materials:

Presentations and Trainings: Another way we share our information with the community is by presenting to community groups, institutions, schools, and by attending fairs and festivals to teach all types of audiences through lectures, presentations, trainings, and/or educational games.

  • CERCH offers presentations and trainings on topics such as household safety, pesticide exposure prevention, and many more.
