CHE Alaska Partnership

This partnership explores the emerging science of environmental health, justice, and education relevant to the state of Alaska and its people. Coordinated by Alaska Community Action on Toxics (ACAT), CHE-AK works to inform health professionals, researchers, health-affected groups, government agents and other concerned citizens about environmental links to disease and disability. You can learn more about CHE Alaska’s partnership with ACAT on the ACAT website.
