Endocrine Disruptors in Consumer Products
Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Consumer Products is a three-part series of interactive, self-paced eLearning modules. The goal of this series is to enhance the knowledge of physicians and other healthcare providers about endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) including populations who may be vulnerable to exposure, identification of EDCs in consumer products, potential health effects of exposure, and exposure prevention strategies. By enhancing their knowledge, physicians and other healthcare providers can better assess patients who may be exposed to EDCs in consumer products.
