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. The UCSF PEHSU aims to reduce these risks by providing training for health professionals, offering consultations to families and communities, and developing educational resources on environmental health issues that affect children.
