Protecting Children's Environmental Health ? March 30
Columbia University's Center for Children's Environmental Health is holding a conference March 30 on “Translating Science to Policy: Protecting Children's Environmental Health.” The conference will take place at the school's Alfred Lerner Hall, 2920 Broadway, New York, N.Y. According to Columbia, “the conference will focus on three major environmental health concerns affecting children: air pollution, pesticides, and endocrine disruptors in consumer products. The purpose … is to share research findings … over the past 10 years in these specific areas, discuss interventions stemming from this research that have been implemented in New York City, and identify strategies to advance policies that will reduce and prevent environmentally-related diseases such as asthma, developmental disorders, and cancer in children living in urban communities.” For more information, go to: www.ccceh.org/conference09.html.
