The Role Clinicians Play in Protecting the Health of Private Well Owners

The Pediatric Environmental Health Center at Boston Children’s Hospital and the New England Region Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (PEHSU) welcome health professionals to attend the monthly virtual Pediatric Environmental Health (PEH) Grand Rounds.

This Grand Rounds series will provide healthcare providers with state-of-the-science content on current topics in pediatric environmental health. Such information will fill in the knowledge gaps of practitioners, enabling them to effectively counsel families whose children face possible health issues due to environmental chemicals, toxins, and other insults. The PEH Grand Rounds will also educate on practice strategies for the biomonitoring of children at risk for specific exposures to environmental pollutants.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  1. Discuss the public health issues surrounding private well owners and drinking water.
  2. Summarize the research on clinician’s success in encouraging testing of private well water.
  3. Outline the steps clinicians can take to support their patients who use private wells.
