Resources for Health Care

Nurses are trusted, credible spokespeople on a range of public health issues, including environmental health, and see first-hand the effects that toxic chemicals can have on the health of their patients. You can have a tremendous impact when educating your patients, other caregivers, and policy makers. To help promote environmental health education, we've created a series of fact sheets specifically for nurses and other healthcare professionals.
