Pediatric Integrative Medicine embraces a holistic, whole-child approach, specifically examining the context – the ecology – in which optimal health and wellness is promoted. This groundbreaking one-day symposium, co-hosted by the Collaborative on Health and the Environment, The Whole Child Center and the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, will highlight a range of interacting factors that influence child health and development, including nutrition, education, socio-economic status, exposures to toxic chemicals, and access to preventive health care. Leaders in these fields of expertise will also describe model programs and concrete steps toward creating optimal and sustainable environments in which children can thrive and reach their full potential.

This symposium is open to health professionals, research scientists, parents, school administrators, teachers, policymakers, city planners, nutritionists and all others concerned with ensuring children have the best possible environments in which to grow and develop. Note that the meeting will be held the day before the start of the annual meeting of the American Academy of Pediatrics in San Francisco.
