Webinar: Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals - the latest research and how to counsel patients on reducing day to day exposures
April 19, 2016
Improve your skills to offer preventative environmental health guidance to your patients
Time: 7:00 - 8:30 pm EDT
From our air to our water to the products we use on a daily basis, our environment is permeated with harmful substances. Yet very few health professionals have been trained to help patients understand how to protect themselves from environmental toxins.
PSR seeks to train new doctors and nurses so that they are better able to protect the health of children and other susceptible populations by providing preventative environmental health guidance. Ours is a two-step process: train-the-trainer, then train the new practitioner.
Our second train-the-trainer lecture will review new research on endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs). The presentation will give a brief overview of EDCs and discuss recent biomonitoring studies investigating the presence of fire retardants in women and children. Environmental health resources will be provided.
Trainer: Johanna Congleton, MSPH, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, Environmental Working Group and PSR National Board member
Sponsored by Physicians for Social Responsibility. Contact Kathy Attar at email@example.com or 202-587-5224 with any questions.
This webinar is the second of three presentations. Prenatal exposures will be the topic of the 3rd webinar which will take place in May 2016.
