National Center for Environmental Health
CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) plans, directs, and coordinates a program to protect the American people from environmental hazards. We promote a healthy environment and prevent premature death, avoidable illness and disability caused by non-infectious, non-occupational environmental and related factors. We are especially committed to safeguarding the health of people who are at increased/higher risk–such as people from racial and ethnic minority groups, people with lower socioeconomic status, children, the elderly, and people with disabilities – from environmental hazards.
