Dorchester Book

Dorchester Book
Originally developed for the 2012 NIEHS Environmental Health Sciences Core Center Meeting, this informational booklet on the neighborhood in Dorchester was updated in Fall 2012 in a collaboration with the community group GreenDorchester. It contains information about the demographics, built environment, health concerns, and community activism in Dorchester, with a central focus on air quality and asthma.
