Environmental health affects everyone. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and other aspects of the environment in which we live, work, and play all have a direct impact on our health. The Environmental Health Nexus (EH Nexus) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is a new communication network for sharing information about environmental public health topics.

This month's column highlights the EH Nexus and its four pillars: webinars and conferences, newsletters, communication partners, and expanded outreach activities.
