Environmental health professionals work to support schools, childcare facilities, and local agencies to ensure the health and safety of children in our communities.
Lead Exposure Reduction Project
We are working with tribal and territorial communities to provide education and tools to address lead exposure risks and testing in their areas. Learn more about the project and access the community-specific training materials and resources we have created.
COVID-19 Early Care and Education (ECE) Collaborative
Early in the COVID-19 pandemic response the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) provided support to establish the COVID-19 Early Care and Education (ECE) Collaborative. The ECE Collaborative was convened by us and served as a forum to bring together key environmental health organizations, each with their own specialization and constituents, to better coordinate activities and messaging.
Convening a broad range of organizations ensured that messaging was both coordinated and tailored to the ECE community including ECE facilities, home-based childcare settings, clinicians and other health care providers, and public health organizations.
