Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals and COVID-19

Thursday, June 18, 2020, 10:00AM
Hosted by Collaborative on Health and the Environment

Certain underlying chronic conditions associated with exposures to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are exacerbating the effects of COVID-19 in vulnerable populations. Older adults and those who have compromised immune systems, or other underlying conditions such as diabetes, asthma, or obesity have shown to be at increased risk of more severe illness from the virus. During this webinar, Dr. Linda Birnbaum, Dr. Aly Cohen, and Dr. John Peterson Myers will discuss the impacts of EDCs on population and individual health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
