Who We Are and What We Do

The New York State Children’s Environmental Health Center (NYS CEHC) network serves as a model program for statewide services in pediatric environmental health, rooted in building the capacity of the seven Centers and the larger health care community to prevent, diagnose, and treat environmental exposures from pregnancy to young adults and all stages in-between across NYS. Our mission is to protect and improve the health of New York State’s children in regards to potential adverse effects of environmental toxicants, for the purpose of promoting life-long health and well-being. This Network will serve as a source of expertise for pediatricians and other front-line health care professionals, offering advice on prevention, management, and treatment of environmentally-related health effects in children.
