We are part of a network across North America dedicated to providing expertise on the connection between children’s health and the environment.
Children are uniquely vulnerable to environmental contaminants because they are still developing and their behavior can expose them more hazards. Georgetown University's Mid-Atlantic Center for Children's Health and the Environment aims to reduce these risks by educating health providers and the general public about how the environment can impact children's health, as well as offering consultations to health providers, families and communities about potential health issues arising from environmental exposures.
This site connects information and resources inlcuding the latest research and recommendations on a variety of environmental health topics and describes current activities of Georgetown's Mid-Atlantic Center for Children's Health and the Environment.
