National Environmental Health Association—Children's Environmental Health Technical Section
The National Environmental Health Association—Children’s Environmental Health Technical Section is part of a professional association which is an advocate for the improvement of the child’s environment by use of highly technical environmental health practitioners, educators, and researchers. The association and the technical section provide a considerable amount of educational experiences for environmental health professionals in order to utilize their skills in helping resolve and prevent environmental problems related to children. The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) issued a comprehensive document stating the great significance of the movement to try to improve children’s health for a better environment. This was issued on July 2, 1997, and was entitled NEHA Position on Children’s Environmental Health. (See endnote 65.) The Children’s Environmental Health Technical Section was also formed to provide necessary assistance for the present and future, and the Association continues to work toward improvement of the health of children.
