Science Cafe: Everyday Chemical Exposures: Impacts on Prenatal Development
February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Exposure to chemicals in our environment at critical times during gestation can alter the way children grow and develop. We will discuss what we know about human exposure to a variety of chemicals and how we try to study the health impacts of environmental exposures in human populations.
