Health Effects of Wood Smoke

Data collection is nearing an end for the STOVES study at the Powerhouse. Since Fall of 2016 we have been taking health measurements on participants before and after they are exposed to cookstove smoke. Using designated clinical areas at the Powerhouse (shown in the photo), we have assessed various measures of cardiovascular and pulmonary function in study volunteers. We will soon begin the data analysis phase of the study to look at associations between short-term exposure to cookstove smoke and acute changes in health outcomes.
