Mold & Moisture Study

In partnership with the University of Illinois School of Public Health and the Illinois Department of Health, the Great Lakes Center for Children's Environmental Health is conducting research on the effects of mold and moisture in the home on children's health. As part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Healthy Homes Initiative, our study is designed to specifically investigate the effects home remediation in homes with moisture and mold damage on children's asthma symptoms.
