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 vulnerable populations – such as children, the elderly, and people with disabilities – from certain environmental hazards.
You can’t stop a tropical storm or hurricane, but you can take steps now to protect yourself and your family.
The Tracking Network provides data and tools that you can use to see how extreme heat may affect your health. Learn more.
