Children’s Environmental Health on the Border: Protecting Children Where They Live, Learn, and Play

We want to invite you to the Children’s Environmental Health on the Border Symposium. Here at EPA, we continue to work with our partners to address binational environmental challenges and disproportionate health impacts that burden Border communities, especially as they impact children. Several groups have come together to address the link between health and the environment, especially where children live, learn, and play.

Contributors to this effort include the Southwest Center for Pediatric Environmental Health at Texas Tech, US/Mexico Border Health Commission, the US/Mexico Border 2020 Program, and the Border Environmental Cooperation Commission.

This symposium is part of a broader initiative that looks to:

  • Increase knowledge of how early childhood exposures can affect children’s health.
  • Facilitate networking among the healthcare community, promotoras, and the public.

Healthcare professionals (i.e., physicians, nurses, mid-level practitioners, and respiratory therapists), public health practitioners, promotoras, and the public are encouraged to attend and may sign up for continuing medical/nursing education credits.

When: September 24-25, 2015

Where: Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center - El Paso
