Health in Harlem
Underprivileged Americans, particularly those of color, are disproportionately exposed to environmentally
hazardous conditions in their communities. These hazards range from outdoor exposures associated with i
ndustry and/or transportation, to indoor hazards associated with poor quality housing. The neighborhoods
of Northern Manhattan (Harlem and Washington Heights) typify this problem in that their outdoor and
indoor environments provide excessive opportunity for exposure to air pollutants and allergens, lead,
asbestos, and indoor residues of insecticides. Thus, the objective of the Center for Environmental Health
in Northern Manhattan is to foster research aimed at diseases due to, or exacerbated by, this perturbed
