The Children’s Environmental Health Center

At the Children’s Environmental Health Center (CEHC), we conduct groundbreaking research to identify the environmental causes of childhood disease. We translate these findings into solutions that protect children’s health — using research to educate families and change public policy.

Since our founding in 2007, philanthropic donations have allowed the CEHC to generate $11 million in grants, recruit world class scientists and make important policy changes, including banning the chemical BPA from baby bottles, sippy cups, and cash receipt paper in Connecticut and Suffolk County, New York

We also provide free consultation for parents who have questions about environmental exposures. To contact the Mount Sinai Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (PEHSU), please call 1-866-265-6201 or e-mail pehsu@mssm.edu.
