Who we are

Our broad coalition of organizations, representing public and environmental health, environment, children’s, women’s and medical communities, support, follow and call attention to the vital work being done by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).  NIEHS, one of the 27 institutes and centers of the National Institutes of Health, focuses on the prevention of health problems and diseases with special emphasis on the intimate interactions between our bodies and the environments where we live, work and play over our lifetimes. 


Our organizations recognize how important the intramural and extramural research programs at NIEHS are to our nation’s health.  We join together to highlight the major research accomplishments achieved by NIEHS’ intramural scientists and academic and community grantees.
