Green Kids Doc blog
The Center’s blog introduces environmental medicine topics to parents, healthcare providers, medical students, and other interested members of the public. We cover environmental exposures at home, at school, at work, and in the outdoor environment. We look at how exposures occur (who, what, where?), what the resulting health effects might be, and what you can do to prevent exposures.
