Children’s Health & Environment Study


The Children's Health and Environment Study (CHES), led by Leonardo Trasande, MD, MPP, director of the Division of Environmental Pediatrics at NYU Langone, examines the helpful and harmful effects of environmental exposures on children’s health and development.

With funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through its Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) program, we partner with women before and after the birth of their children to collect information about exposures to chemicals and other factors in the environment. These data help us identify the long-term health effects of early-life environmental exposures.
