I am a professor of psychology at James Madison University. Since 1992 my students and I have been doing the following in in order to better understand environmental illness, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity in particular. We are especially interested in the life impacts of MCS and in contextualizing MCS within an industrial culture. Following are some of the activities that we have engaged in:

We have written a number of journal articles focusing on the life impacts of MCS.

We have delivered a number of conference papers describing life with MCS. Go to papers
The self-help book Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: A Survival Guide has evolved out of this research. Go to survival guide site
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and issues of environmental health in general are discussed in all of my classes. Special independent studies focus on environment, emerging illnesses/disabilties such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. One course in particular focuses on environmental health and its importance for understanding behavior. Go to syllabus for Environment, Health, & Behavior
