Who We Are and What We Do

The New York State Children’s Environmental Health Center (for convenience “NYSCHECK”, pronounced “nice check”) 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.
