About the Webinar
Exposures to dangerous chemicals can have a multigenerational impact on women, children and entire communities.
In celebration of International Women’s Day 2024, join us for an insightful panel discussion that delves into the intersection of heavy metal pollution and maternal health in low- and middle-income countries followed by an audience Q&A.
