Symposium on Cumulative Impacts and Children's Environmental Health ~ Sacremento, CA, January 16-17, 2013

Cumulative impacts are defined as the sum of all sources of environmental exposures and factors, combined with individual and population level sensitivities, as well as social and psychosocial factors that affect communities and individuals. This symposium, a joint effort by the Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Leukemia and the Environment at the University of California Berkeley, the Office of Health Hazard Assessment of the California Environmental Protection Agency, and Northern California Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit at the University of California San Francisco, examines children's environmental health in terms of cumulative impacts.
