Webinar- Pesticide Exposure and Response for Children (Wed Feb 8 @ 10 am PST)

Join us for this month’s webinar with leading scientists from two EPA/NIEHS Children’s Centers, the University of Washington and the University of California, Berkeley/Eskenazi Children’s Centers. The webinar features presentations and interactive discussions including recent findings and new developments in children’s environmental health.

The mission of the EPA/NIEHS Children’s Centers program is to reduce children’s health risks, protect children from environmental threats and promote their health and well-being in the communities where they live, learn and play.
