Creating a safe community where families can thrive requires us to acknowledge and address the harmful impact of climate change and environmental hazards through programs, education, research and advocacy.
This working group will take actions that include:
The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade
Air Alliance Houston
NIEHS promotes translation of research results into a collective body of knowledge that informs and supports public health action. It supports research programs, community-engaged activities and training and education programs to address the disparate health impacts of environmental hazards on disadvantaged communities and ensure environmental health equity.
The EHD Centers support research efforts, mentoring, capacity building, research translation and information dissemination, and are designed to address program-specific research priorities.
What does environmental health have to do with maternal and infant health? This webinar from the Mom and Baby Action Network explores the intersection of environmental threats (i.e. toxins in your home or neighborhood, water quality, climate change and heat) and their impact on maternal and infant health.
