If you are willing and able to participate in this study, a small air pollution monitor will be placed in your home for a few weeks. It looks like this:

You will also be randomly placed into one of three groups. Your group will determine what type of education you get. No matter your group placement, you will learn how you can decrease air pollution exposure within your home. 


If you participate in this study, our research team will visit your home 4 times over ? weeks to speak with you and to maintain the air pollution monitor. These will be short visits:


Visit 1 = 30 minutes

Visit 2 = 1-2 hours (depending on group)

Visit 3 = 1 hour

Participation in this study is rewarded with $100!!!
