Prenatal Environmental Influences on Fetal Growth and Development

Health professionals are invited to participate in the next iteration of the PEHSU National Webinar Series for this live webinar and phone-based event. This in-depth and interactive series provides a platform for learning and discussion about issues that focus on current and emerging aspects of pediatric and reproductive environmental health.

Date: Wednesday, November 17

Time: 1:00-2:00pm ET

Description: The Southeast PEHSU will present a National PEHSU Grand Rounds webinar on prenatal environmental influences on fetal growth and development. Rapidly developing fetuses could potentially be exposed to harmful chemicals through fetal bloodstream and reach developing organs and organ systems. This could potentially disrupt the programmed development directly through interference at the cellular level. This presentation will examine some of the signal events and discoveries that have informed health professionals’ awareness of fetal vulnerability to environmental toxins and provide strategies to prevent potential harm to the fetus and assure a safe and healthy outcome of pregnancy.
