Service-Learning Project: Increase awareness of the students and local community about hormone, endocrine disruptors and their effects on human health and environment.

Given the importance of hormones and endocrine disruption in human and wild life, the proposed studies and outreach activities will have very broad impact, revealing a better understanding of hormone signaling network and their disruption by endocrine disruptors (EDCs). EDCs are widely dispersed in our present day existence, from drinking water to foods and pose major health and environmental concern. It is important to increase awareness and educate our students, teachers, and community about EDCs. Herein, this will be achieved by using innovative outreach program through service learning, and hands on summer research program for high school students and teachers, and interactive workshop.
