Over 200 people attended the EPA/NIEHS Children’s Centers annual meeting on October 29th and 30th, which celebrated 15 years of the program and Children’s Health month, in a joint meeting with the Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units (PEHSUs). The theme of the meeting was “Protecting Children’s Health for a Lifetime: Environmental Health Research Meets Clinical Practice and Public Policy.” The meeting featured remarks from EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and NIEHS Director Linda Birnbaum, and presentations from many of the Children’s Centers researchers and PEHSU physicians. A Proceedings document from the meeting will be available at a later date.
