There is evidence that environmental exposures contribute to a rapid increase in disease incidence. Using the AoU cohort to understand how environmental exposures exacerbate the cormbidity between these conditions and subsequent disease... more »

However, this score does not account for environmental exposures as experienced at a person's primary residence, many of which are strongly associated with cardiovascular disease. Using All of Us we can evaluate if measurements... more »
