Welcome/Introductions

9:10 am–10:00 am
“Long-term Consequences of Childhood Lead Exposure”
Aaron Reuben, MEM, PhD (pending)

This talk will present what we have learned about lead from four decades of follow-up in a New Zealand-based longitudinal birth cohort born during the era of leaded gasoline.  Evidence will focus on socioeconomic life trajectories, psychological health, cognitive ability, and brain integrity at midlife following childhood lead exposure.

10:00 am – 10:50 am
“Toxic Hearts: The Mysterious Decline in Coronary Heart Disease”
Bruce Lanphear, MD, MPH

In the fall of 1978, physicians and scientists gathered in Bethesda, MD to solve a mystery:  Why had the death rate for coronary heart disease (CHD) suddenly plummeted?  This presentation will focus on three distinct periods to explore the role of lead and other toxic chemicals in the decline.  Building on data from the United States and Britain, we will investigate the reasons for the mysterious decline in CHD deaths.

10:50 am–11:40 am
“Consequences of In-Utero Lead Exposure”
Morri E. Markowitz, MD

Pregnancy is a unique situation where lead poisoning can occur in a woman and her fetus.  When does the fetus become susceptible to lead effects?  Do the effects persist after delivery and, if so, for how long?  This presentation will address these questions.

Youth Sports in the COVID Era: What’s the Best Advice for Parents & Pediatricians?

View the Event Flyer

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

In the COVID era, youth sports involvement has created a host of issues for the pediatric health community.  While the benefits of youth sport for mental and physical health are well known, the issues of COVID have sidelined thousands of athletes in New York state and beyond.  As we learn more about COVID-19, we are looking for ways to most effectively return all young athletes back to the field while keeping schools, communities, and families safe.  This program will explore the issues of youth sport during COVID-19 from the perspectives of sports medicine, general pediatrics, and cardiology.  Following the program, audience questions will be encouraged.  The program is free and open to all health professionals, coaches, and parents involved in youth sports.

AGENDA:

7:30-7:35pm – Welcome from Warren Seigel, MD, MBA, FAAP, FSAHM, NYS AAP (District II) Chair

8:05-8:35pm – Speaker Panel Discussion with Marc Habert, MD, FAAP, Prema Ramaswamy, MD, FAAP & Warren Young, MD
