Air Pollution and Pregnancy Complications in Complex Urban Environments: Risks, Heterogeneity, and Mechanisms (APPCUE)
To advance the understanding of the impact of air pollutant mixture and the built environment on pregnancy complications (gestational diabetes, gestational hypertension, and pre-eclampsia/eclampsia) and outcomes by leveraging prospectively- recorded and high-quality maternal clinical data from the electronic health record and address data with state-of-the-art spatiotemporal air pollution modeling and novel statistical methods that examine both individual and composite exposure profiles.
Effects of air pollution and gestational diabetes on autism
The proposal will gather preliminary biomarker data in newborns in response to air pollution and gestational diabetes exposure in-utero
The Hyperglycemia and Adverse Pregnancy Outcome (HAPO) Follow-up Study
The HAPO Follow-up Study will recruit from the cohort of women and their offspring who participated in the original HAPO Study to test the hypothesis that hyperglycemia in pregnancy, less severe than overt diabetes, is independently associated with increased risk of adverse childhood and maternal outcomes 8-12 years later. The general aim of the study is to obtain measures of adiposity, glucose, insulin sensitivity and secretion, lipids, inflammation and blood pressure in 7,000 HAPO mother-offspring (aged 8-12) pairs of multiple ethnic/race groups from ten of the original HAPO field centers.

The Virtual Visit for Women with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM)
This pilot study will address two specific aims: (1) to assess the acceptability of telemedicine technology to conduct virtual office visits alternating with regular office- based prenatal visits for women with GDM from the viewpoint of women with GDM and their health care providers using qualitative research methods, and (2) to assess the feasibility of this telemedicine-based intervention (Virtual Office Visit) for women with GDM. This information was be used to support a larger proposal to obtain funding to conduct a clinical trial to test the proposed intervention after it is refined based on input from patients and health care providers.
