Tukwila Community Center, October 1 – 2, 2009
What do we really know about how our children are affected by toxic exposures, especially during their critical developmental years?
And, who’s minding the shop when it comes to protecting our kids from these chemicals?
The Northwest Children’s Environmental Health Forum brings together a rare group of scientists and policy makers who are on the cutting edge of answering those questions. Conference participants hear from these local and national experts individually as well as on interactive, cross-topic panels, with generous Q&A; time provided.
Day 1 (Thursday, October 1)
Hear from top scientists from around the country who are actively working in this field, as they share their research, debunk myths, and summarize their next steps. Topics include autism, food exposures, endocrine disruptors, climate change, cell phones and electromagnetic exposures, and emerging chemicals of concern.
Day 2 (Friday, October 2)
Get updated on local and national policy and legislation efforts to protect our children. 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. Hear case studies from around the country, and interact with policy experts to identify future needed actions. All speakers are
actively engaged in policy reform efforts.
