Dr. Magzamen's PubMed Publications




Dr. Magzamen’s primary research focus is understanding the relative contribution of social factors and environmental exposures on childhood chronic disease. Sheryl has worked extensively in the elementary school setting on developing surveillance methods and educational programs for childhood asthma, understanding the role of lead exposure in educational outcomes, and analyzing the role of social culture and indoor environmental quality and the health and performance of students and teachers. She has active collaborations with exposure scientists to develop refined exposure assessment models in community and agricultural settings in studies of childhood and occupational respiratory disease. Her current methodological work focuses on application of novel approaches to understand environmental pollutant mixtures in community-based studies. Sheryl holds an appointment in the Department of Epidemiology at the Colorado School of Public Health, and at the Veterans Administration (VA) Eastern Colorado Health Care System.  Dr. Magzamen currently teaches ERHS 538: Geographic Information Systems & Health at Colorado State University (Spring Semester).
