October 11, 2018 was proclaimed the first Children’s Environmental Health (CEH) Day in New York State, in conjunction with the launch of the NYS Children’s Environmental Health Centers (NYSCHECK). This is an archive of past Children’s Environmental Health Day presentations and celebrations.
There is a great overview map of all CEH Day activities nationally on the cehday.org site. Scroll down to see the map.
Environmental health includes factors relating to clean air, water and food; chemicals in consumer products; healthy homes, schools, workplaces and neighborhoods; as well as energy, transportation and financial networks. Communities of color and communities with less wealth are disproportionally affected by adverse environmental health factors.
