The In Harm’s Way PowerPoint presentation was created as the core curriculum for the In Harm’s Way Training Programs for Health Professionals which was designed to assist health professionals in understanding and preventing toxic threats to child development.
The presentation includes slides and notes based on the Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility (GBPSR) report, In Harm’s Way: Toxic Threats to Child Development. The report is a peer-reviewed and extensively referenced compilation of current knowledge on the effects of toxic chemicals on child development, and has been endorsed by some of the leading researchers in this field.
