Break the Cycle is a collaborative interdisciplinary research and training program with University faculty who mentored graduate students in academic tracks that focus on the environmental impact on children's health. The target populations are communities where the environmental hazards are related to circumstances of social and economic disadvantage. Each student was required to develop a project that focuses on reducing or preventing environmental health related illnesses and disorders for children who live in these communities. Each student developed a creative project to "berak the cycle" at any point.

In addition, during this workshop there will be presentations from national experts in the areas of children's environmental health disparities, indoor air quality and the Healthy Homes Project.
