Children’s Environmental Health Day & Launch of the NYS Children’s Environmental Health Centers

Governor Andrew Cuomo proclaimed October 11 the first Children’s Environmental Health Day in New York State. The day was a great opportunity to announce the launch of the newly established statewide network for children’s environmental health. The network will train and support health care professionals to address environmental health issues and provide clinical pediatric health services to families. Sites are located across the state, including in Albany, Buffalo, Long Island, New York City, Rochester, Syracuse, and Westchester. The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City serves as the coordinating center. During the CEH Day award ceremony, NYSCEHC honored Mark Maddaloni (EPA-Retired), Peggy Shepard & Cecil Corbin-Mark (WEACT for Environmental Justice), Kathy Curtis & Bobbi Wilding (Clean and Healthy NY, and Nanci Pavlisko (Parent Champion) on the first official CEH Day in NY State! Mount Sinai participated in activities led by Children’s Environmental Health Network to celebrate CEH Day.  https://twitter.com/NYSCEHC/status/1050465888363827201
