Prescriptions for Prevention

We would like to thank our partners from the NIEHS funded “P30 Supplement: Environmental Health E-Screener” project that came together to develop the Prescriptions for Prevention. With input and meaningful involvement of our diverse expert panel spanning 5 CECs and 5 PEHSUs across federal Regions 1,2,3, 5, and 9 we were able to bring CEC and PEHSU together to work collaboratively on communication tools that connect CEC resources to health care professionals.

  • Our environmental pediatricians and partners created “Prescriptions for Prevention” to provide information for New York families to address common environmental health concerns such as lead, secondhand smoke, mold, and radon.
  • The front of each prescription explains simple steps for reducing the exposure. The back of each prescription lists key resources that families can use to help address the concern.
  • Please click on the hyperlinks below to download, print, and share the prescriptions in English. Spanish versions are also now available to download.
