Children’s developing systems and unique behaviors make them more vulnerable than adults to being harmed by unhealthy environments, such as a child care setting that contains harmful, common chemicals.  How can entities that are dedicated to protecting children’s health and development build their capacity to better protect children’s health?

Presenters on this webinar will discuss the lessons learned by their organization in the process of adopting policies or practices to protect children’s environmental health.  New resources on children’s environmental health for child care professionals will also be shared.
