Children’s Health

We want our children to grow up healthy and strong, in environments—at home, school, and outside at play—that foster their maturity and development. Small bodies are more susceptible to toxins than adult ones, so researchers in our department are investigating exposures to certain contaminants that may cause adverse health effects in children, now or in the future.

CENTER SPOTLIGHT: The Northwest Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit is made up of a team of experts who provide training on environmental exposures and their effect on children’s health. They also provide consultations to health professionals, communities, and families.
