Children are especially vulnerable to hazards in our environment and to natural disasters such as hurricanes. Exposure levels tolerated by adults can have lifelong health and educational consequences for children. Pound for pound, children breath more air, consume more food, and drink more water than adults, and their respiratory, immune, neurodevelopmental systems are still developing. Please join us to learn about the newest research related to childhood exposures, including lead, arsenic, and other metals, and during hurricanes and other natural disasters.
