6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

 There are approximately 6.6 million children in the mid-Atlantic Region
 and about 9.7% of them have asthma.  These children may spend up to 10
 hours a day in an environment such as a school or childcare setting.
 Many of these buildings are old and in poor condition and may have
 environmental conditions that inhibit learning and pose increased risks
 to those inside.  Therefore, it is very important to ensure that these
 facilities are as safe as possible.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 3 Office in
 collaboration with the Southeast Pennsylvania Area Health Education
 Center; the Philadelphia School and Community Integrated Pest Management
 Partnership; the Women’s Health and Environmental Network; and the
 Mid-Atlantic Center for Children’s Health and the Environment will be
 holding a webinar on green cleaning, integrated pest management and an
introduction of the Region 3 Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty
 Unit.

 If you are a childcare owner or worker interested in improving your
 indoor air quality or ensuring an environmentally friendly facility,
 then this is the webinar for you.  For more questions or to register
 send an email to the Mid-Atlantic Center for Children’s Health and the
 Environment at MACCHE@cnmc.org or call 866-622-2431.
