Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals and Maternal Reproductive Health Impacts

March 9, 2021

In the fifth webinar in our Generation Chemical series, Jeanne Conry, MD, PhD, President-elect of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, will moderate a discussion with Julia Varshavsky, PhD, MPH, Sverre Wikström, MD, PhD, and Ning Ding, PhD, MPH on toxic environmental exposures and maternal reproductive health impacts. Dr. Varshavsky will present findings from a recent review of 64 epidemiologic studies on chemical exposures during pregnancy and three maternal outcomes (preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and breast cancer). Dr. Sverre Wikström will discuss two of his recent publications investigating the associations between early pregnancy exposure to PFAS and miscarriage, preeclampsia, and impaired fetal growth, respectively, in the Swedish SELMA pregnancy cohort. Finally, Dr. Ning Ding will present her study investigating the impact of PFAS on ovarian aging using data from the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN). The speakers will also highlight exposure and health disparities and policy implications. Visit https://tinyurl.com/generationchemical to learn more and to register.
