Leading health professionals, scientists and advocates agree that exposure to chemicals are putting children at risk for neurodevelopmental disorders like autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and learning disabilities.

UC Davis Environmental Health Sciences Center Director Irva Hertz-Picciotto is leading initiatives around these environmental impacts on kids. One such push is Project TENDR (Targeting Environmental Neuro-Developmental Risks), an organization working to protect infants and children from preventable threats to healthy brain development.
