The Center for Research on Environmental and Social Stressors in Housing Across the Life Course (CRESSH) is an environmental health disparities (EHD) research center funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities involving researchers at Boston University School of Public Health and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The CRESSH project that used MCR was the Home Observation and Monitoring Exposure (HOME) study, which involved collection of indoor air quality data from 150 homes in two environmental justice communities in the Greater Boston area: 72 homes in the city of Chelsea and 74 homes in the Boston neighborhood of Dorchester [24,25]. Report-back for HOME consisted of general and individualized information which characterized common routes of exposure to indoor air contaminants, as well as numerical, text, and graphical representations of participants’ in-home air concentrations of these contaminants. The study team completed the report-back for Chelsea without MCR in summer 2018, manually creating individualized reports for each participant [26,27]. For the report-back in Dorchester (winter 2020), the study team used MCR to generate reports using numerical, text, and graphical results prepared in R and Microsoft Excel.
