UTMB-led researchers awarded $7.8 million for Gulf spill study
Date:7/7/2011

in stress through blood levels of the stress hormone cortisol. The researchers will also evaluate the resilience of the study communities, seeking factors that have helped or hindered their responses to the oil spill and the series of Gulf Coast hurricanes that preceded it and looking for ways to improve resilience in the face of possible future disasters.

Finally, GC-HARMS includes an outreach component aimed at informing Gulf Coast residents of its discoveries and other relevant health-related research. In addition to the three community groups involved in conducting research, three other organizations have been enlisted for this effort: the South Bay Communities Alliance of Coden, Ala., the Zion Travelers Cooperative Center in Phoenix, La., and Bayou Interfaith Shared Community Organizing in Thibodaux, La.

"Our partners are really tied in to their respective communities, and they offer us a variety of ways to get messages out everything from radio public service announcements in English, French and Vietnamese, to environmental medicine workshops for health providers," Croisant said. "As always in the CBPR process, the community will be involved at every single level."
