Departing from the hotel at 10:00 am, the Environmental
Health Bus Tour uses a novel approach to introduce pediatric
providers to various place-driven environmental factors that
few physicians adequately comprehend or include in their
treatment plans. Such omissions lead to inaccurate diagnoses,
failed treatment plans, ongoing health problems, and
increased societal cost. The following education sessions will
be held on the bus between site visits.
