Childhood Development, Resilience and the Environment Module
This program examines critical time windows during development that may enhance social stressors and chemical exposures resulting in profound effects on an individual. Interactions among family, social support systems, and the larger community, access to good nutrition, healthy homes, and positive work and play environments are all important and contribute to resilience. These ideas build a framework for understanding environmental justice and how it addresses systematic disparities in exposures to environmental hazards based on race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic/societal standings that may impact people’s health.
