ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH SCREENING FOR HEALTHY HOMES
The Children’s Environmental Health Center of the Hudson Valley boasts a multidisciplinary team, including physicians, nurses, social workers, epidemiologists, statisticians, researchers, and experts in environmental health, all dedicated to protecting children against environmental threats.
The Children’s Environmental Health Center of the Hudson Valley is a collaboration of the physicians at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center, and its affiliated medical university, New York Medical College, including its School of Health Sciences & Practice.
We provide comprehensive environmental health (EH) screening for all new patients seen in our outpatient offices. We have eight outreach offices throughout the Hudson Valley all of which provide these services. In addition, we provide environmental health screening services for any hospitalized patient admitted to the pediatric pulmonology service and are expanding our screening and consultative EH services in the inpatient setting at Maria Ferrari Children’s Hospital. Our screening has been adapted from a validated environmental screen from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) which identifies common triggers for respiratory diseases and other adverse environmental exposures that can impact children’s health.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
CEHCHV is an academic hub for training of pre-medical and medical professionals interested in environmental health. We conduct a summer intern program for interested students ranging from high school to graduate school level. We regularly educate trainees in medical school, pediatric residency and incorporate core principles of children’s environmental health into our pediatric pulmonology fellowship. We provide community level education with our many
community partners and together we provide education to the families in the region.
