October is Children’s Health Month and the Environmental Protection Agency is going all out to make sure everyone is aware of the risks of hazardous chemicals in schools, the threats that old, dilapidated school buildings pose, and of the benefits of a healthy school environment—for students and adults. Check out the EPA’s list of activities for the month, or read their 2006 report on children’s environmental health, or consult the daily calendar that has a children’s environmental health tip every day. If you want to be more participatory, mark your own calendar for Oct. 19, when you can tune into a webcast discussion of chemical management in schools.
