Early Environmental Exposures and Chronic Disease Prevention in Ontario

Article date: 20-Jun-2011

In 2011, the Canadian Partnership for Children’s Health and Environment (CPCHE) completed the 3-year Ontario Trillium Foundation-funded collaboration with the Ontario Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance (OCDPA). In October, 2009, and in 2010, in addition to monthly teleconferences, stakeholder forums were held to encourage ongoing discussion and collaboration among partners whose mutual goal was to discover how environmental health protection would help sustain child health and prevent development of chronic, environmentally-associated illnesses.  Meanwhile, appraisal of the evidence linking early environmental exposures with chronic disease outcomes was proceeding by Kathleen Cooper of CELA and three co-authors, including Dr. Lynn Marshall, culminating in Early Exposures to Hazardous Chemicals/Pollutants and Associations with Chronic Disease: A Scoping Review, published in June 2011 by the Canadian Environmental Law Association, Environmental Health Institute of Canada, and the Ontario College of Family Physicians.
