On September 2, 2015, our very own Dr. Robert Amler, (co-founder of our center) traveled with Dr. Phillip Landrigan from the Mt Sinai Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (PEHSU), and representatives from other such centers to urge New York State to fund the statewide network of children’s environmental health centers.  We thank you so much for representing our Children’s Environmental Health Center in Albany.  Hope it will prove worthwhile.

The EPA is excited to announce the release of new guidance, Energy Savings Plus Health: Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for School Building Upgrades. This Guide is written primarily for school facility managers, energy managers, risk managers, building operators and school administrators to help them collaboratively manage the relationships between energy efficiency upgrade activities and indoor air quality in schools.The Guidelines offer opportunities to prevent and control potentially harmful conditions during school renovations. The Guidelines address 23 critical topics for building upgrades, including moisture control and mold, building products and materials and ambient air quality.
Our children spend many hours in school, and it is a relief to know that agencies like the EPA is aware of the importance of a healthy environment for our kids.
