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.

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. Bookmark the toolkit web app and discover simple ways to educate and guide parents about environmental health during well child visits.
