The NIEHS/EPA Children’s Centers Program
For many reasons, children are likely to be more vulnerable than adults to the effects of environmental contaminants. To better understand the effects of these exposures on children’s health, the NIEHS/EPA Children’s Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Centers (Children’s Centers) were established in 1998 to explore ways to reduce children’s health risks from environmental factors. The webinar series, co-sponsored by the EPA Office of Children’s Health Protection and the National Center for Environmental Research, features presentations and interactive discussions on recent findings and new developments in children’s environmental health research.
The NIEHS/EPA Children’s Centers are part of EPA’s Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) Research Program. The SHC Research Program provides useful science and tools for decision makers at all levels to help communities advance sustainability as well as achieve regulatory compliance. SHC is collaborating with partners to conduct research that will result in science-based knowledge to guide decisions at the federal, regional, state and community level that will better sustain a healthy society and environment in America’s communities.
