(From UCSF Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment) We are very excited to announce the release of a new paper in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AJOG):

Toxic Environmental Chemicals: The role of reproductive health professionals in preventing harmful exposure. Authored by: Patrice Sutton, MPH; Tracey J. Woodruff, PhD, MPH; Joanne Perron, MD; Naomi Stotland, MD; Jeanne A. Conry, MD, PhD; Mark D. Miller, MD, MPH; Linda C. Giudice, MD, PhD

The paper describes the role of health professionals for preventing exposure to harmful chemicals and provides advice on steps that health professionals can take such as taking an exposure history and asking about exposures at work, at home and in the community.

Another recent paper about clinicians’ involvement in reproductive environmental health also appears online in AJOG. Led by Sheela Sathyanarayana, MD, MPH, of Seattle Children’s Research Institute, the paper provides a guide outlining exposure risks and reduction tips for some of the most common environmental toxins.

The article is entitled: “Environmental exposures: how to counsel preconception and prenatal patients in the clinical setting,” Sheela Sathyanarayana, MD, MPH;   Judith Focareta, MEd, RN; Tanya Dailey, MD; Susan Buchanan, MD, MPH
