Speaker: Donna Ferullo, Autism Society of America
Have you ever wondered about the factors that contribute to the dramatic rise in autism within one generation? It cannot be accounted for by purely genetic means. If so, join us for this webinar to learn more about the emerging science that increasingly examines the possible role of environmental exposures and gene- environment interactions in the inception and modulation of intellectual and developmental disabilities. Listen in as our speaker discusses some of the recent papers and concepts in autism and environment investigations, describes the Safer Chemicals Act and examines public health in general.
