Children's Environmental Health Symposia

Each year the Children’s Environmental Health Program sponsors a symposium on key emerging issues relevant to state scientists and policy makers in the field of children’s environmental health. Each meeting has been well attended and, in addition, more than 100 individual sites throughout North America have accessed the meeting via the web. These symposia help keep our state scientists at the forefront of science and policy and provide a forum for interaction between state scientists and researchers on cutting edge issues.
