Those who are interested in scheduling a presentation on a specific children's environmental health issue for your group are invited to call us at 866-967-7337 or email us at ChildrensEnviro@uic.edu.

We also host a reproductive environmental health conference in the fall. Previous topics have included PFAS, lead, mercury, and BPA. We will share event details and registration information on our website and in our monthly newsletter.

The Center is involved in ongoing development of web-based courses pertaining to children's and pregnant women’s environmental exposures and health issues for health care providers. The National PEHSU also offers continuing education opportunities on the online classroom. Participants can select from a wide range of topics including reproductive health, pesticides, and climate change.
