Join us for this month's webinar. The webinar features presentations and interactive discussions including recent findings and new developments in children’s environmental health.
Topic: Unequal and Unhealthy: How Co-Exposures to Psychosocial and Physical Environmental Stressors Interact to Cause Health Disparities
In this webinar, four distinguished speakers discuss how combined exposure to psychosocial stressors (such as racial discrimination and poverty) and physical environmental factors (such as air pollution, chemicals, diet and allergens) impacts child health and development. Participants will learn: 1) how segregation, poverty and the legacy of racism intersect to create unhealthy environments for children; 2) how the timing of co-exposures to psychosocial stressors and physical environmental factors plays an important role in chronic disease programming; and 3) How lessons from the local level could help determine core principles and other decisions to help protect vulnerable children and their families.
