The Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN) is a national multi-disciplinary organization whose mission is to protect the developing child from environmental health hazards and promote a healthier environment.
CEHN’s 2020 voter guide sets out five issues for voters to consider putting the health of children and their environment FIRST. Use the guide and share it widely to help elect women and men who will support children’s health and their environment.
CEHN also has great tools for childcare providers, including their Lead-Safe Toolkit for Home-Based Child Care. While there is NO safe level of lead in a child’s blood, the chemical can be found in water, paint, soil, dust and is commonly found in consumer products. This toolkit can help family childcare providers identify lead sources and address low cost solutions to reduce lead hazards and promote the health and safety of children.
CEHN’s Eco-Healthy Child Care® E-Curriculum is focused on education around 16 topics and low- to no-cost solutions for reducing/eliminating lead exposures in all childcare facilities. This course is recommended and applicable for those outside of childcare as well.
