The Pediatric Environmental Health and Lead Clinic offers care for children who are ill because of an exposure to a toxic substance in their environment. This clinic is affiliated with a national network of Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units that are supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The clinic is located at Cincinnati Children’s main hospital.
As a patient of the PEHSU, your child will be cared for by a team of pediatricians, occupational / environmental medicine physicians, toxicologists, social workers and nurses. We provide telephone consultations for health providers, public health agencies, communities and families regarding the health effects of toxic exposures in children.
