Exposed: The Role of Environmental Health Science in Improving Health Outcomes and Community Decision-making
Environmental health is an issue that affects all of us, but none more profoundly than our children. Children receive proportionately larger doses of environmental toxicants than adults, and the fact that their organs and tissues are rapidly developing makes them particularly susceptible to toxic environmental exposures. Learn more about the risks, scientific advances, and opportunities for improving prevention strategies and promoting healthier communities through this panel discussion hosted by the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing.

- Ruth Etzel, M.D., PhD, Director, Office of Children's Health Protection, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
