Healthy Schools and Daycares. Webinar. 10/30/2017 2-3pm

upcoming webinar on environmental health issues related to schools and daycares:

Title: Healthy Schools / Healthy Daycares

Date: October 30, 2017 • 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. EDT

Registration (required):

On the heels of the second annual Children’s Environmental Health Day (October 12, 2017) and the 15th annual National Healthy Schools Day (April 4, 2017), this webinar will focus on one important aspect of children’s environmental health – their learning environment. Approximately 55 million children are in 130,000 public and private PK-12 schools every day, and 9.8 million are in out-of-home, nonrelative, licensed child care and Head Start centers. Therefore, it is important to reflect on the different exposures that may affect their health and consider strategies for preventing or reducing those potential harms. In this webinar, we will hear from two experts in the field who will discuss the critical issues requiring our attention, the advances that have been made, and the opportunities for future work.
