Our environmental pediatricians and partners created “Prescriptions for Prevention” to provide information for New York families to address common environmental health concerns such as lead, secondhand smoke, mold, and radon.

The front of each prescription explains simple steps for reducing the exposure. The back of each prescription lists key resources that families can use to help address the concern. For additional information on the concern, we have posted links to key informational websites below the link to each prescription.

Please click on the thumbnails below to download, print, and share the prescriptions in English. Spanish versions are also now available to download.
