Environmental Exposures and Health Risks: What You Need to Know
Session Number: 1068
Date: Sat, Apr 13th, 2019
Time: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
In this session we will review common exposures in our everyday lives and examine their associated health risks. The special vulnerabilities of the fetus, infants and children will be reviewed. Several evidence-based sources will be shared, as well as guidance to avoid or reduce potentially toxic exposures. We will also look at the state of chemical policies, including where they are lacking, and opportunities to advocate for improvement.
