  • Lung function test
  • Hearing test
  • Dental examination
  • Blood and urine tests
  • Diabetes test

Participants will also answer questionnaires to help us learn more about their health, including their medical, family, and work related history; use of medications, supplements, and home remedies; and lifestyle practices (e.g., physical activity, nutritional practices), among other topics. All our health interviewers are fluent in Spanish and English, and all parts of the study can be conducted in Spanish or English.

After the clinic visit, participants will be contacted once a year for three years to provide us with updates on their health and contact information.

All participant information will be kept confidential.
