Second Annual Children's Environmental Health (CEH) Day is on Thursday, October 12, 2017!
CEH Day was developed by the Children's Environmental Health Network (CEHN)
to raise awareness and understanding about the critical environmental health issues facing children and to mobilize action. CEH Day is recognized every second Thursday of October. It is a day for the children’s environmental health community to raise awareness of children’s health issues, celebrate successes in the field, share exciting new initiatives, and discuss new challenges and the road ahead. CEH Day is also a day of action. This is where you can help!
The NEED - Despite the many successes and advancements in the field of children’s environmental health over the past few decades, today’s children face an epidemic of illness and chronic diseases linked to environmental exposures and our changing climate. There is an urgent need to put children and families back into the forefront of our nation’s actions regarding health and environment.
The ACTION – Join CEHN for the 2nd annual CEH Day on October 12, 2017 to promote CEH Day widely via social media and share your vision and commitment for making children’s environmental health a priority.
