Healthcare professionals are important partners for the advancement of environmental public health. On the front-line of healthcare delivery, clinicians, pediatricians, nurses, and many other professionals play an important role in providing their patients and the communities they serve with valuable environmental health information. However, studies have shown that there is a knowledge gap.

Presenters also will discuss strategies they are using to build the environmental health literacy of their colleagues. Speakers: (1) Nicholas Newman, D.O., M.S., Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and (2) Mark Miller, M.D., M.P.H., University of California, San Francisco
