Purpose of the Meeting:
During Children's Health Month, researchers, clinicians, scientists and representatives of professional organizations and other participants will convene to explore the interplay between research, clinical applications, and policy implications in children's environmental health.

EPA's Office of Research and Development, EPA's Office of Children's Health Protection, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) are sponsoring this conference to celebrate the work of the EPA/NIEHS Children's Centers program and the Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units (PEHSUs) and to discuss recent developments in children's environmental health.

The meeting will feature interdisciplinary presentations and discussions that explore connections between research findings, clinical and community practice, how to protect children from harmful environmental exposures and discuss approaches for sharing research findings and technical information with the scientific community, parents and the public.
