More than 2400 researchers, policy makers, health advocates, and interested individuals participate in CHE's topical listservs where informed conversations occur about environmental links to a range of diseases and disabilities and actions being taken to address these concerns.
We use the term 'ScienceServ' to make explicit that our core work is serving up the best available science—science to share, to digest, to spark constructive conversation among everyone who wants to join our table, and to catalyze prevention-focused initiatives, policies, and practices. We do this by fostering discussion and distributing science-based articles and reports about each topics connections to toxic chemicals and other factors. We aim to create collaborative opportunities among researchers, advocates, public health professionals, patients, and healthcare providers to reduce the burden in the community.
CHE is designed to be a safe and constructive space for all CHE Partners to respectfully share, investigate, debate, and discuss the emerging environmental health science and its implications for human and planetary health. We are deeply committed to civility and mutual respect in order to advance knowledge and understanding.
How to Join
This ScienceServ explores how environmental contaminants can contribute to or exacerbate asthma, highlighting primary prevention strategies to reduce exposures.
This ScienceServ explores the connections between autism and the environment.
This ScienceServ explores the emerging science linking chemical and other environmental factors to cancer.
Children's Environmental Health
This ScienceServ explores the promotion of children’s health through prevention of environmental exposures and other factors that undermine healthy development.
Climate and Planetary Issues
This ScienceServ explores the emerging science linking climate change and other planetary health issues, such as infectious diseases and pandemics, to a range of health outcomes.
Diabetes and Obesity
This ScienceServ explores the emerging science linking environmental chemicals and other environmental/societal factors to the development and management of all types of diabetes, of obesity, and of metabolic syndrome.
This ScienceServ explores the emerging science on the health effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF).
Environmental Health Science
This ScienceServ explores the emerging science on numerous environmental factors that contribute to a variety of human diseases. We understand that the basis of sound policy and action is updated and contextualized scientific knowledge, which must be disseminated and digested collectively.
This ScienceServ explores the science on environmental contributors to diseases and disabilities that most often occur later in life as well as environmental factors that promote healthy aging. Research indicates early life exposures can increase the risk of later life diseases. This means that "healthy aging" is really about health across the lifespan.

This ScienceServ explores the emerging science evaluating integrative (complementary and alternative medicine) therapies used by medical providers and patients facing illnesses linked to environmental exposures. Our discussion includes a balanced evaluation of such therapies and a discussion on how environmental surroundings can support health and resilience for those facing disease treatment.
Learning and Developmental Disabilities
This ScienceServ explores the emerging science investigating environmental impacts on neurological development and health.
This ScienceServ explores the emerging science investigating the impact environmental pollutants may have on fertility and reproductive health.
