We are dedicated to protecting children's health from toxic chemicals. Much of our children's health work is accomplished through the Michigan Network for Children's Environmental Health, a coalition of health professional, health-affected, and enviromental organizations from across the state who share the common mission of reducing children's exposure to toxic chemicals. We strive to protect children's health through:
- Advocacy: we advocate for policies at the state and national levels that would best protect children from toxic chemicals found in everyday consumer products, our homes, schools and the environment.
- Outreach and Education: we partner with community-based organizations and institutions to provide innovative curriculum for health professionals, children's health advocates and families focused on creating healthier homes and reducing exposure to toxic chemicals.
- Research: we work closely with our HealthyStuff.org team to indentify toxic chemicals in children's products and how to minimize exposure.
