TPS Summit on Child Thriving and Environmental Justice
We are happy to invite you to a summit bringing together TPS partners and new collaborators to discuss challenges and initiatives in our communities around child thriving, environmental justice, and health equity. The summit will be held on Thursday, December 2, 2021, from 9 a.m. to noon, E.S.T.

The places where children and youth play, sleep, work, and learn can influence how their lives and their health unfold. There is a lot to talk and learn about—air and water, parks and pipes, stores and storms.

At the summit, we will focus our discussion on three topics: local efforts to prevent children from experiencing the health problems associated with heavy metal exposures; the relationships between air quality and asthma risks; and new recognition of trees and the important roles they play in making communities healthier, safer, and more beautiful.

Participants will include scientists, clinicians, care providers, advocates, parents, grandparents, and interested community members. What we all have in common is shared interests in improving child health and well-being and working towards health equity and racial justice.
