Environmental Injustice: Children’s Health Disparities and the Role of the Environment

Lawrence D. Rosen, MD and Deirdre Imus

Abstract
Children are our most precious natural resource. Ensuring the optimal health of this generation and future generations of children is not a choice we have—it is a human rights mandate.

Although rigorous read more…
