A network of experts in reproductive and children’s environmental health

Education and Resources

Many of the environmental risks that lead to ill health can be lessened or prevented with proper healthcare provider education and preparation. The Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units are dedicated to increasing knowledge about environmental medicine among parents, community members, patients and healthcare professionals regarding children’s environmental health.  

The PEHSU program has created a National Classroom for healthcare professionals. We provide regular webinars and online courses on reproductive and children's environmental health topics. We also provide helpful resources for everyone within our Resouce Catalog. We encourage you to explore all of our educational products.
