Title: EPA/NIEHS Children's Centers 2014 Webinar Series
Date: August 13, 2014
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EDT
Location: Webinar
Purpose:

Join us for this month's webinar: Environmental Exposures and Neurodevelopmental Health Outcomes

This webinar will discuss the role of environmental developmental outcomes and the need to sort out the complexity and dynamics of environmental exposure. The two talks will highlight work on POPs as well as episodic tobacco smoke exposures. We will look at two key areas of neurodevelopmental interest: Autism and ADHD. Mechanisms of immune response, as well as epigenetic changes will be explored. Lessons learned across these areas will be shared.
