Opportunities and Challenges for Personal Heat Exposure Research

Conclusions: Personal heat exposure research provides more valid and precise insights into how often people encounter heat conditions and when, where, to whom, and why these encounters occur. Published literature on personal heat exposure is limited to date, but existing studies point to opportunities to inform public health practice regarding extreme heat, particularly where fine-scale precision is needed to reduce health consequences of heat exposure. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP556 Received: 24 May 2016 Revised: 17 January 2017 Accepted: 20 January 2017 Published: 01 August 2017 Address correspondence to D.M.
