Karr offers CME course. Pediatric Outcomes - Pesticides & Nitrates

Friday, October 2, 2015 - 12:24

The developing fetus and children living in agricultural areas are at higher risk for exposure to pesticides and nitrates. Living in close proximity to agricultural fields, living with someone who works in agriculture, and living in a home where pesticides are used increase the risk for exposure to pesticides. Excessive nitrates in well drinking water may result from leaky sewage pipes, septic system failures, improper management of farm animal waste, and runoff of fertilizers and manure on irrigated farm fields that seeps into wells. This one hour, CME approved, on-demand training will equip clinicians to recognize, diagnose and provide treatment for these important environmental exposures. Visit the PEHSU site to find out more.
