Bio: 
With the support of COEHD, Lor hopes to learn about the connection between DHA effects on health and consumption of DHA from the community. The central valley of California is listed as one of the most poor area in the states with high rates of low income families. There are strong correlations between low SES and health problems for families who do not have the funds to provide a healthy meal. More importantly, neural development occurs during the initial years after birth and while still in the mother's womb. Low consumption of DHA along with other nutritional sources can be a huge factor in the mental development of babies. The DHA levels in breast feeding milk and processed milk are the primary concerns in this study
