ChEHC is a unique program that offers health care for children with possible environmentally related issues. Our team consists of specialists in pediatrics, occupational and environmental health, nursing, and public health.
We utilize a pediatric environmental history tool as part of a full medical assessment in the context of the medical problem and results of relevant investigations and provide recommendations for:
children (prenatal to 17yrs.) who may be exposed to harmful environmental exposures at home, in child care, at school or within their community
children with acute, persistent and/or non-responsive health conditions, which may be environmentally related
We respond to questions and offer community advice/support for local children's environmental health issues (link to recent community issues)
We assist local, national and international government and non-government agencies in issues of children's health and the environment.
