Protecting our children from the long-term health impacts of common contaminants.
The Children’s Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Centerat Geisel, with funding from the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is a leader in investigating and tracking the developmental and long-term health impacts of exposures to common contaminants—such as arsenic—during pregnancy and childhood. There is growing research that connects exposure early in life to a number of prevalent and life threatening childhood diseases, and their effects appear to extend beyond childhood. Your support will enable the Center to continue its research efforts and inform policies that help prevent health problems in children.
