Disease Prevention

The Lowell Center is focused on the prevention of asthma and cancer:

  • Through research, systems analysis and strategic convening of stakeholders, we led a first-in-the-nation effort to reduce the onset of new asthma cases. Learn more about Preventing Asthma.
  • Driven by conviction that the rise in incidence of many cancers can’t be solved by better treatments, we are mining the science on the role of exposures to toxics, and driving solutions among consumers, businesses and health care at the local, state and national levels to prevent cancer.
