The Children’s Environmental Health Network: Protecting Preschoolers from Radon

The Children’s Environmental Health Network: Protecting Preschoolers from Radon

Although most U.S. children under age six spend up to 40 hours a week in child care settings, little has been done to protect young children from environmental health hazards like radon in child care and preschools. The Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN) is a national, multidisciplinary, non-profit organization whose mission is to protect the fetus and the child from environmental hazards and promote a healthy environment by focusing on the areas of research, policy, and education. Recognizing preschools and child care settings as a missed opportunity to address children’s environmental health. In response, CEHN launched the Georgia Healthy Environments for Child Care Facilities and Preschools (HECCP) program in 2006.

Hi All,

New member, first post. I recieved an email from the List server Radon Professional forum that mentioned this new forum.

I was unable to stay for the last day of the AARST conference and missed the discussion on what was to be done on the issue of granite countertops, Radon, and radiation. I heard that the CRCPD is going to host the effort.

Are there any details anywhere on what is going to be done and when? Can stakeholders sign up for participation or comment?

Thanks,
Al
