A network of experts in reproductive and children’s environmental health

PEHSU Grand Rounds Webinar

This webinar is part of an ongoing series of educational presentations by experts on issues that focus on current and emerging aspects of pediatric and reproductive environmental health.

What was Old is New Again: A Home Visit Model Using Integrated Health Navigation for Children with Asthma - October 10, 2018 - 1:00 pm ET

These presentations focus on the impact of environmental exposures to chemicals on human health at the vulnerable stages of in utero and pediatric development. A number of topics will be included – all of them relevant to questions of exposure and health effects, with consideration of risk reduction. Speakers will include physicians and PhD subject matter experts, as well as individuals with expertise in areas such as home assessment, laboratory analysis, and risk communication.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this module, participants should be able to:
  • Understand the value health navigators can bring to clinical programs and how they can and do interact with clinicians
  • State some of the effects on outcomes experienced with navigator-based programs and specific cost-avoidance seen with a home visit program for children with asthma
