The Children’s Environmental Health Center is the vehicle within the Mount Sinai Institute for Exposomic Research that communicates groundbreaking research on exposomics and children’s environmental health to the general public, both locally and nationally. It connects our science to a growing national movement of supporters and communities committed to ensuring a healthier future for all.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are developing resources to help keep families safe in partnership with other pediatric environmental health experts throughout New York State. Check out the New York State Children's Environmental Health Centers Network COVID-19 resource page to get information on guidelines on how to safely use disinfecting chemicals in the home and other resources. Healthcare providers may also use the Network's Prescription for Prevention on Green Cleaning to educate the families they serve on safer cleaning practices.
