Dr. VanEenwyk is currently a co-investigator with lead responsibility for field work and data analysis on a 5-year biomonitoring project. The project is in its third year. We plan to to assess levels of urinary pyrethroid pesticide metabolites in professional, non-agricultural pest control workers. We will also plan a project for implementation in year 4 to measure levels of hair mercury in high fish consuming Washington residents of Asian heritage. Tentative plans for years 4 and 5 include measuring a variety of chemicals in residents of low income housing to assess exposures to pyrethroids, tobacco smoke, BPA and phthalates.
Dr. VanEenwyk also uses routinely collected surveillance data to assess chronic disease and related risk factors and to identify disparities based on income, education, or race and ethnicity. She is currently interested in using area-based social measures from the American Community Survey to assess disparities in Washington.
