Putting It Into Practice:

Pediatric Environmental Health Training Resource


Thank you for your interest in CEHN's Pediatric Environmental Health Training Resource. It consists of 12 PowerPoint modules, and each of them has an supplementary User Guide. They have been designed to assist you in incorporating pediatric environmental health into your teaching program. The user guides provide guidance on specific slides in the modules that may not be self explanatory, as well as information on additional resources, possible discussion questions, suggested assignments, and other tips you can use to teach pediatric environmental health to your students, residents, or colleagues.
