Health

NEEF's work is designed to build a broad, inclusive coalition of stakeholders to focus on environmental health concerns and benefits. From training tens of thousands of health care professionals about various environmental health issues, including taking a patient's environmental history, environmental management of pediatric asthma, and promoting outdoor activities to help prevent a variety of health conditions including obesity and diabetes, NEEF's programs provide resources and training to healthcare providers to improve patient outcomes.

Below, you can learn more about NEEF's programs as well as browse resources for health care practitioners and faculty about incorporating pediatric environmental health into teaching programs and practices.
