Creating & Using Knowledge to Protect Children’s Environmental Health
March 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN) has developed a 2019 Five-part Webinar Series – Protecting Children’s Environmental Health: The Blueprint in Action. Each free webinar will explore promising efforts underway that correspond to or address one of the five Blueprint recommendations.
Webinar 1: Creating & Using Knowledge to Protect Children’s Environmental Health
Children’s environmental health protection relies on preventive research. Continued support is critical for filling in research gaps, including effects of multiple exposures, cumulative exposures, and psychosocial stress, as well as for gaining emerging insights from epigenetic, microbiome, and other mechanistic research. In addition to supporting continued scientific discoveries and advancements, we need to harness the evidence we already have, make it clear and accessible, and use it to inform child protective actions. Scientific findings educate and equip decision makers, health care providers, parents, communities, and others with the information they need to provide children with optimal environments for healthy development.
