“State of the Science: Children’s Environmental Health in Alaska and the Circumpolar North” by Sarah Petras, MPH

This report summarizes the scientific evidence linking environmental exposures and adverse health outcomes for children in the Arctic, including neurodevelopmental disorders, birth defects, childhood cancers, respiratory conditions,  metabolic disorders, and compromised immune systems.

Published in conjunction with ACAT’s 2016 Children’s Environmental Health Summit, the report will serve as a foundation for implementation of the recommendations for action proposed by Summit participants. A volunteer task force is working to implement those recommendations.
