These Centers were created to ensure that children and communities have access to specialized medical knowledge and resources for children faced with a health risk due to a natural or human-made environmental hazard, usually at no cost.
Located throughout New York State, CEHCNY professionals provide quality medical consultation for health professionals, parents, caregivers, and patients. The CEHCNY are also dedicated to increasing knowledge about children’s environmental health by providing consultation and training to healthcare professionals. Finally, the Centers in the CEHCNY network provide information and resources to schools and community groups to help increase the public’s understanding of children's environmental health.
