Description: The Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units (PEHSU) are actively engaged in providing guidance on safe disinfectant to combat transmission of COVID19 and promote healthy home and community environments. This initiative will build off of the current work and bring it to scope for targeted implementation nationally. Further, the PEHSU will provide leadership, instructional content, and technical support on guidance for the prevention of infectious disease by addressing personal behaviors, food handling, and household cleaning practices that reduce transmission of COVID19 and other infectious disease. The PEHSU will build and coordinate a consortium of public health partners in developing and tailoring educational content, key messages and guidance materials to meet the needs of the consortium’s target populations. The consortium partners are proposed to be Association of State Public Health Nutritionists, Children’s Environmental Health Network, and the National Environmental Health Association, and the American College of Medical Toxicology. Each Consortium partner will work with defined target populations with specific needs. Each partner will use their skills to deliver the Healthy Environments risk reduction education to meet those specific needs. The PEHSU Regions will provide regional coordination for cross cutting outreach efforts applying social media and use of other communication channels. Additionally, the primary target population for PEHSU will be the health care community and other community-based organizations. Those in this population may include national clinic networks like the Migrant Health Clinics, hospital community medicine programs, health and wellness programs, and other programs providing community or clinic- level patient education. These may include childbirth educators, community health workers, and youth development organizations who can to educate their clients and communities healthy on environment practices.
