We're dedicated to developing effective strategies to bring children’s environmental health research to the community, academia and healthcare. Founded in 2021, the Center is an NIEHS-funded program of the University of Pennsylvania and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. It is one of six Collaborative Centers in Children's Environmental Health Research and Translation.
Our partners and member researchers work to implement real world solutions and interventions in Philadelphia to serve as a model for success elsewhere.
