6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Eastern time

Sponsor: US Environmental Protection Agency Region 3 Office in collaboration with the Southeast Pennsylvania Area Health Education Center, the Philadelphia School and Community Integrated Pest Management Partnership, the Women's Health and Environmental Network and the Mid-Atlantic Center for Children's Health and the Environment

Are you a childcare owner or childcare worker? Do you have children in your care that have asthma or other respiratory issues? Do you want to make your indoor environment greener and healthier? Did you know that many chemicals in the cleaning products used in schools are toxic? Did you know that these chemicals contribute to poor indoor air quality, smog, cancer, asthma, and other diseases? Do you know there is someone to call if you suspect a child in your care has a health problem that may be related to the environment? Do you know there are alternatives to using pesticides and the usual cleaning products? This webinar will introduce green cleaning, integrated pest management and the Region 3 Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit serving Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
