Summary

Health outcomes resulting from chronic exposures to port activities include increased cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory disease. The proposed research is significant because it will allow adverse health effects of anticipated air pollutants resulting from increased diesel emissions associated with port activities to be assessed. The research team has developed with community input a health survey from existing, validated survey instruments to self-report health outcomes including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and lung diseases.
