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. By providing opportunities to learn about the best available science through CHE-related activities, such as partnership calls and news updates, our Alaskan partners can act even more effectively to improve health across the lifespan in their families and communities.
CHE does not take a stance on specific legislation nor sign petitions and the like. Rather, we investigate and discuss the scientific foundation for more health-protective policies in a civil tone. For posting guidelines and etiquette, please see our CHEtiquette.
