Marianthi-Anna Kioumourtzoglou: Exposure to DES During Pregnancy and Multigenerational Neurodevelopmental Deficits
Kioumourtzoglou M-A et al. Association of Exposure to Diethylstilbestrol During Pregnancy With Multigenerational Neurodevelopmental Deficits. JAMA Pediatrics. 2018;172(7):670-677.
A recent analysis published in JAMA Pediatrics investigates exposure to diethylstilbestrol (DES) during pregnancy in relation to third-generation attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This paper presents results from the Nurses’ Health Study II (NHS-II) cohort. In this webinar, Dr. Marianthi-Anna Kioumourtzoglou, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, described the study design, statistical analyses, and the findings of this study.
Marianthi-Anna Kioumourtzoglou, ScD, is an environmental epidemiologist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, New York. Her research focuses primarily on how environmental exposures impact human health, with a special emphasis on air pollution exposures and neurological and psychiatric outcomes. She is also investigating factors that potentially modify these associations, including community and neighborhood characteristics, and weather. In addition, she is very interested in statistical issues related to environmental epidemiology, such as exposure to environmental mixtures and exposure measurement error.
This webinar is one in a monthly series sponsored by the Collaborative on Health and the Environment’s EDC Strategies Partnership. The CHE EDC Strategies Partnership is chaired by Carol Kwiatkowski and Katie Pelch (TEDX), Sharyle Patton (Commonweal Biomonitoring Resource Center), Jerry Heindel (Commonweal Program on Endocrine Disruption Strategies), and Genon Jensen (HEAL) and coordinated by Maria Williams (Collaborative on Health and the Environment, a Commonweal program). To see a full list of past calls and webinars related to EDCs and listen to or view recordings, please visit our partnership page.
This webinar was moderated by Katie Pelch, PhD, Senior Scientist at The Endocrine Disruption Exchange. It lasted for 30 minutes and was recorded for our call and webinar archive.
