Researchers, public health officials, housing authority staff and community members from Boston and New York came together in February 2007 to share lessons learned in their efforts to improve the health in homes in urban settings. The group focused particularly on the use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to reduce residents’ exposures to pesticides and allergens from pests.

This website was created as a place to post information presented at the February 2007 meeting, to share additional information on IPM in homes as it becomes available, and to promote the continued collaboration of the groups represented at the meeting.
