The Children's Environmental Health Network (CEHN) is planning a Gala in celebration of our 20th anniversary.  We will honor the work done in the the last twenty years, highlight exemplary current efforts, and help to set the vision for the next 20 years!  The event will take place at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on the evening of September 7th, 2012.

The Children's Environmental Health Network is a national multidisciplinary organization whose mission is to protect the developing child from environmental health hazards and promote a healthier environment.  CEHN is the voice of children's environmental health in the nation's capitol, one that is uniquely informed by a strong basis in pediatric and environmental health science.

Over the last 20 years, leaders in policy, science, community and arts/media have been honored at    CEHN's annual awards event.  Invited honorees will be asked to talk about the advancements made in the field of children's environmental health over the last two decades and the key opportunities ahead.
