Collection focused on a collaboration between CPCHE and the Ontario Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance

CPCHE and the Ontario Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance (OCDPA) engaged in a multi-year project, funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), to explore the links between fetal/childhood exposure to toxic substances and the later development of chronic disease. This project concluded in June 2011 with the completion of a major scoping report that summarizes the evidence for associations between early environmental exposures and chronic disease. The report Early Exposures to Hazardous Pollutants/Chemicals and Associations with Chronic Disease (also linked below) provides a foundation for future collaborative work across these two networks.From January to March of 2013, CPCHE provided a webinar series about this report and research conducted since its publication. Slide decks and related links are provided below or, directly, view the slides and voice presentations for all three webinarsFor more information about CPCHE's work in this area, please contact: Erica Phipps, CPCHE Partnership Director,
