The Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units (PEHSUs) are dedicated to increasing knowledge about reproductive and children's environmental health among health care professionals. Many of the environmental risks that lead to poor health outcomes can be mitigated with proper health care provider education and preparation. Health care providers are well-positioned to deliver the education and care needed to protect children from environmental threats and to share relevant information with colleagues.
