Epidemiology
Work: 401-863-1987
Beth Triche is a perinatal, pediatric, and environmental epidemiologist with experience conducting large-scale field studies enrolling thousands of women during pregnancy and children with asthma or at risk for asthma. Her research focuses on risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes and on the effects of in-utero exposures on the longer-term health of the women and her offspring. She also conducts research on multiple sclerosis, including rehabilitation trials.

Biography

Dr. Beth Triche's research focuses on perinatal, pediatric and environmental epidemiology. She conducts studies on the effects of genetic factors, environmental exposures, dietary intake, and comorbid conditions on adverse pregnancy outcomes, particularly preeclampsia. She also conducts studies on the effects of in-utero exposures on the health of the offspring and the longer-term effects on the mother. Another area of research focuses on multiple sclerosis, a disease that primarily affects women in the prime of their lives, including rehabilitation trials. Dr. Triche has also researched the role of environmental pollutants on asthma development and severity in children.

Agency: NIH/NICHD (HHSN267200700032C)
Title: National Children's Study (PI: Buka)
Dates: 7/1/10 – 9/25/13
Role: Co-Investigator
Description: This project examines the effects of environmental influences on the health and development of more than 100,000 children across the US, following them from before birth until the age of 21. Brown/Women & Infants Hospital has two study sites (Providence County, RI and Bristol County, MA). Using a provider-based recruitment strategy, the goal is to enroll 1,000 families from each study site. The overall goal of the study is to improve the health and well-being of children.

Agency: NIH/NIEHS (R01 ES0 17416)
Title: Traffic and Respiratory Morbidity in the Northeast (PI: Leaderer/Gent/Holford)
Dates: 7/16/09 – 4/30/14
Role: Co-Investigator
Description: This study will use data collected in our previously conducted studies of children and pregnant women along with pollutant estimates from sophisticated atmospheric models to examine the short-term effects of air pollution on respiratory morbidity.

Description: This study uses a two-pronged approach to assessing the impact of air pollution on birth outcomes. The first method will examine whether traffic exposure and pollution measurements at the residential addresses of a cohort of 10,000 women have an impact on birth outcomes. The question will be revisited using birth certificate data on over 250,000 women in the same area as the cohort study data.
