Children and chemical exposures: Jessie Buckley, PhD.

"There's a lot of work to be done"

As an environmental and pediatric/perinatal epidemiologist, Dr. Buckley studies the role of environmental chemical exposures in the development of childhood obesity.


Currently she is investigating whether chemicals thought to be environmental obesogens also impact bone health, a significant but understudied component of child well-being.

Listen to Dr. Buckley as she describes her inspiration for becoming a scientist and the important work she is doing with the Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Data Analysis Center Study - a large, multi-institution collaboration.
