For Public Health Professionals

NW PEHSU serves as a free resource for public health professionals on matters of environmental health, including providing guidance after a chemical spill or natural disaster, promoting awareness of environmental health issues, and creating harm reduction plans for exposures in everyday situations. We work with local, state, and federal agencies to address children’s environmental health issues in homes, schools, and communities. Consultations are primarily conducted via phone or email.

If you are a public health worker or work for an agency or organization in need of expertise in pediatric or reproductive environmental health, call 1-877-KID-CHEM (1-877-543-2436) or email us at to request a consultation. A team member will respond to the request between 1 and 4 business days. For immediate assistance with concerns about suspected exposures or acute poisoning, contact the Poison Center at (1-800-222-1222).
