Initiative on
Children's Environmental Health

The Initiative on Children's Environmental Health–formerly the Institute for Children's Environmental Health–became an active working group of the Collaborative on Health and the Environment in 2009. ICEH is devoted to the promotion of children's health and the prevention of environmental exposures and other factors that may undermine healthy development.

Currently the Initiative provides a listserv where CHE Partners can share the latest science on environmental contributors to children's health. Depending on Partners' evolving interest, CHE may expand activites of this group again in the future.

If you are already a CHE Partner and would like to joint this working group, please contact info@healthandenvironment.org. If you are not currently a CHE Partner, please first complete the Partner form, indicating which of CHE's working groups you would like to participate in, including ICEH.

CHE Partners subscribed to the CHE ICEH listserv can access the listserv archive to view messages previously distributed.
