What does working with the Center mean to you?

My interest in the Center began when it was co-founded by my dear friend, the late Dr. Paul Epstein, and throughout its twenty-year history.  I look forward to providing advice and assistance in its next phase of work, including the health impacts of poor indoor air quality.
