How can novel and expansive exposure monitoring with wearable technology improve environmental-disease outcome discovery?

Currently, environmental exposure monitoring measure classic or persistent chemical exposures, but might fail to analyze newer chemicals. Many newer chemicals are high production volume, but are nevertheless not assessed in population or in study-targeted analyses, but may, in fact, be associated with risk to human or animal health. New personal wearable silicone band monitoring devices, such as those designed Dr. Kim... more »

Given their widespread use, even a small... more »
