These short, interactive modules are designed to accompany and enhance the Prenatal Assessment of Environmental Risk (PAER) tool developed by the PEHSU program and Communicate Health under contract to the ATSDR. 

In addition to highlighting the potential sources of exposure to environmental substances and reviewing possible health effects of concern, these modules use case examples of “low”, “medium”, and “higher” exposure settings to provide you as a clinician with a template in which to frame your pregnant patient’s concern or potential for exposure. These modules finish with a short perspective on a relevant literature example or concept of importance in environmental toxicology. We hope you find this exercise both useful and educational, increasing your comfort in dealing with concerns related to pregnancy chemical exposures.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify common sources of pesticide residues.
  • Describe two populations most at risk for exposure to pesticide residues.
  • Recognize three patients' risk for pesticide residue exposure
  • Identify two appropriate recommendations for your at -risk patient.
