Tobacco Exposure and Children’s Health: Identifying Critical Windows and Joint Effects
Speaker:Dr. Moore Length:56:43 minutes
Tobacco exposure is detrimental to early-life growth and the developing brain. Few epidemiological studies have examined prenatal and postnatal exposures within the same study. Therefore, the most susceptible developmental periods are unknown. Early-life nutrition and other environmental factors may further alter risk, but the potential effect-modifying role of these factors has yet to be explored. This webinar will present current and ongoing evidence addressing these important gaps in knowledge.
