The Michigan Center on Lifestage Environmental Exposures and Disease (M-LEEaD) provides research support for training and mentorship of early stage investigators.  These resources target investigators with specific skill sets that are consistent with the Center’s stated mission of promoting new translational research using novel multi-disciplinary approaches to better understand the impact of environmental exposures on adult diseases.
Announcement from the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services:

MiTracking - Michigan Environmental Public Health Tracking

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Division of Environmental Health is pleased to announce its MiTracking data portal is now live. The MiTracking Program gathers existing Michigan-specific data on environmental hazards and health conditions and makes them available in one online location. Data and information are available on air quality, asthma, cancer, heart attacks, childhood lead exposure, and more.

Everyone, from parents to researchers, can easily access data on the interactive data portal, which provides users the ability to:

•       Search for data by county, local health department, or statewide, and by time period. MiTracking is working to provide data for the City of Detroit as well.
•       Compare data across race, age, and gender for some measures.
•       Select, download, and print customized tables, charts, and maps.
•       Discover trends and measure progress over time.
•       Create greater awareness of environmental health concerns in their communities.

MiTracking is administered in the Division of Environmental Health at MDHHS, and supports the overall mission of the Division to address the impacts of natural and manmade environmental hazards on human health. Additional environmental and health data will be added in the future. The MiTracking Program is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Tracking Network.

Find the data, information, and additional resources at Contact Jill Maras, Program Manager with comments or questions about the MiTracking Program at or 517-284-4813.
