Proposed Project Prospective Birth Cohort Study Involving Environmental Uranium PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Exposure in the Navajo Nation (U01)— New—National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) and Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Navajo Nation includes 16 million acres of New Mexico, Utah and Arizona. It is the largest Alaska Native/ American Indian Reservation in the United States. From 1948 to 1986, many uranium mining and milling operations took place in the Navajo Nation, leaving a large amount of uranium contamination on the reservation. Several studies have reported that uranium mostly damages the kidneys and urinary system. However, there is not much research data on uranium exposure and poor birth and reproductive health outcomes. Research involving prenatal exposure to uranium may help to understand and prevent some unfavorable child and maternal health outcomes. There are important health differences concerning birth outcomes and prenatal care in the Navajo Nation. According to the Indian Health Service Regional Differences in Indian Health 2002–2003 Edition, the infant death rate among the Navajo people is 8.5 deaths per 1000 live births, compared to 6.9 deaths per 1000 live births among all races. Only 61% of Navajo mothers with live births received prenatal care in the first trimester as compared to 83% of all U.S. mothers. Early and regular prenatal care is a major predicator of positive birth outcomes. Due to the health differences in birth outcomes and the chance for environmental uranium exposure in the Navajo Nation, ATSDR decided that the upcoming study must include education of women and their families about the importance of prenatal care and the potential poor health risks associated with exposure to uranium. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform requested that federal agencies develop a plan to address health and environmental impacts of uranium contamination in the Navajo Nation. As a result of this request, ATSDR awarded a research cooperative agreement to University of New Mexico Community Environmental Health Program (UNM–CEHP) entitled ‘‘A Prospective Birth Cohort Study Involving Environmental Uranium Exposure in the Navajo Nation (U01),’’ in August 2010. ATSDR and UNM– CEHP are working with the Navajo Area Indian Health Service (NAIHS), Navajo Nation Division of Health (NNDOH), Navajo Nation Environmental Protection Agency (NNEPA), and Navajo culture E:\FR\FM\22NON1.SGM 22NON1
