Environmental Health in Schools, May 10, 2011
Jerome A. Paulson, MD, FAAP, Associate Professor of Pediatrics & Public Health at George Washington University, will discuss.
Teachers and other adult staff are afforded protections from hazards by OSHA regulations, employment contracts, or occupational health services. But children who are more vulnerable to hazards than adults are not provided these protections.
Dr. Paulson will offer recommendations for dealing with data collection, federal actions, state and local actions, and for building the capacity of the Environmental Protection Agency in responding to and evaluating risks to children's environmental health in schools.
