We are constantly exposed to environmental exposures such as air pollution, allergens, and man-made chemicals. AoU offers a unique opportunity to collect such exposures both passively (e.g., linking to local environmental data) and actively (e.g., using novel mHealth devices to measure new data from individual AoU participants). These can be overlaid with behavioral, clinical, genomics, and biological data in AoU to assess complex interplay and effects on cardiovascular & other health outcomes.
