The Children's Environmental Health Network has played a key role in the emergence of pediatric environmental health as a credible and recognized field of research. The core is building a lasting infrastructure to advance pediatric environmental health research. Specifically, this outreach project is expanding the field of pediatric environmental health researchers by providing new fora and Internet/web-based opportunities for interaction and collaboration on the issues. Researchers encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and create new partnerships for NIEHS by connecting scientists and their research with other disciplines to protect children from environmental hazards. Additionally, the core investigators maintain a national interdisciplinary network of organizations and individuals dedicated to preventing child exposures to environmental hazards.
