The Mid-Atlantic Center for Children’s Health and the Environment and the George Washington University Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology’s Conference on Environmental Health for Obstetricians and Gynecologists was held on September 20th, 2013.  

The environment has a profound effect on fetal growth and development, but education regarding environmental influences on the mother and fetus is often underrepresented in Obstetrics and Gynecology curricula.  We gathered leaders from all Obstetrics and Gynecology residency training programs in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia to participate in a one-day conference to nurture environmental program development.

Obstetricians and Gynecologists are increasingly confronted with clinical situations and questions from patients about the impact of environmental toxicants on the general health of women, on fertility in both women and men, and on pregnancy outcome.  There is a growing body of research on these topics and the potential for research funding through the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences of the NIH, the Office of research & Development of the US Environmental Protection Agency and other resources.

Planning of the 12th annual conference is underway; check back for more details.
