Childrens Environmental Health Series
Increasing awareness of pressing environmental health and environmental justice issues
NEEF’s upcoming Children’s Environmental Health Series (CEHS) will increase awareness of pressing environmental health and environmental justice issues and provide healthcare professionals with best practices and community-driven strategies that address social and environmental factors impacting children’s health, particularly among historically marginalized communities.
Building on Success
This year, the Childrens Environmental Health Series will build on our inaugural event that convened 1,100 healthcare professionals to examine social justice and environmental health issues impacting children and their families amid COVID-19, with a focus on pediatric asthma and mental health. Featured speakers included former US Surgeon General, Dr. Regina Benjamin, and two-time NBA champion, Josh Powell.
2023 Themes include:
- Climate Change and Mental Health
- Achieving Health Equity
