|Title:||EPA/NIEHS Children's Centers 2015 Webinar Series|
|Date:||January 14, 2015 (Postponed from December 2014)
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EST
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.
The Role of Environmental Exposure in Childhood Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome and Neurobehavioral Abnormalities
The causes of the childhood epidemics of neurodevelopmental disorders, obesity and its metabolic consequences, including diabetes, are not well understood. Emerging evidence suggests that exposure to common environmental chemicals, prenatally and across the course of childhood, may contribute to these outcomes. Investigators from the Children’s Environmental Health Centers will present new results on associations of ambient air pollutants, metals and endocrine disrupting chemicals with obesity and metabolic disease, and will describe potential biological pathways explaining these effects. Endocrine disrupting chemicals may target multiple organ systems, including neurobehavioral abnormalities also under study in Children’s Center cohorts.
