Northwest Children's Environmental Health Forum

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 1, 2009 - 8:00pm - Friday, October 2, 2009 - 5:00pm
Event Location: 
Tukwila Community Center
United States

The forum will answer two questions: What do we REALLY know about how our children are affected by everyday toxic exposures, especially during their critical developmental years? What are we doing to protect our children from these exposures?

Topics include: hormone disruptors, pesticides in food, cell phones and electromagnetic radiation, house dust, climate change, high-risk exposure times during pregnancy, how an individual exposure can be carried down to later generations, and causes of autism. Policy sessions zero in on efforts being made to protect kids at home, in schools and child care centers, in healthcare settings, in communities, through the foods they eat, and through the toys they play with.

View the Program for a full agenda of sessions and speakers. We have many excellent local speakers. National speakers include:

Ted Schettler, MD, MPH, Science & Environmental Health Network ….an overview of the latest science
Bruce Lanphear, MD, MPH, Simon Frazier University ….neurotoxicants, learning and developmental diseases
Michael Skinner, PhD, Washington State University….epigenetics: how an individual exposure can be carried down to later generations
