Parents say they are concerned about environmental health threats, yet most pediatric care providers do not offer prevention strategies during office visits. Why? Many providers report they feel ill equipped to educate families about common exposures. In an effort to fill the need for environmental health information, PEHSU and PSR have launched the Pediatric Environmental Health Toolkit (PEHT). The PEHT, endorsed by the AAP, is based on material in the AAP “Green Book”. This free and up-to-date resource offers trusted information at your fingertips.
