Free AAIDD Teleconference on Lead Exposure and Developmental Disabilities

Tuesday, April 8, 2008
Location: Teleconference

Although the effects of lead on the developing brain have been studied for decades, there are still many gaps in our understanding of how lead influences brain development and brain function. Join Dr. Jay Shcneider on Tuesday, April 8, at 2 pm US Eastern Standard Time for a teleconference presentation followed by discussion on the effects of lead on brain development and function. The presentation will include a discussion on the conceptual framework for understanding how the biology of lead neurotoxicity leads to brain damage and cognitive dysfunction in a child. There is no charge to dial in.
