Maui Wildfire Exposure Study: Community Health, Wellbeing, and Resilience

The Maui Wildfire Exposure Study (MauiWES) is the most comprehensive study focused on understanding and mitigating the health and social impacts of the Maui wildfires. It aims to fill a gap in knowledge about the effects of environmental hazards and socioeconomic challenges on the health and wellbeing of those exposed to the wildfires. Over at least ten years, the study aims to track and gather data from participants through questionnaires, health assessments, and biospecimen collection, helping the community to better understand resilience and reduce potential risks to short- and long-term adverse health outcomes.
