Child Health

Environmental health professionals work to support schools, childcare facilities, and local agencies to ensure the health and safety of children in our communities.

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.
