Academic Publications

This list is of all GPCAH publications from the past 8 years, in reverse chronological order.  These publications may have been funded by the Center or authored by project leaders and staff. Approximately one third (29%) of GPCAH articles were published in occupational/industrial hygiene journals (e.g., Annals of Occupational Hygiene, Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene) and one third (27%) of articles were published in health and medicine journals (e.g., Agromedicine, Journal of Rural Health).
