Hosted by SPH’s Great Lakes Center for Reproductive and Children’s Environmental Health and designed for OB/GYNs, family physicians, pediatricians, midwives and residents, this year’s esteemed panel of experts will share evidence-based information related to our conference theme, “Chemicals, Pollution, and Pregnancy.” We will discuss the latest, most promising research developments and clinical advancements for reproductive environmental health. Our aim is to provide information for health care personnel and to develop strategies to improve the quality of patient care.
