CHHE’s mission is to understand how human health, at both the individual and population level, is impacted by environmental factors and to implement this knowledge to reduce the adverse impacts of environmental factors on human health.                                                                             

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2018 CHHE Fall Pilot Project Awards! CHHE awarded six Pilot Projects out of sixteen submissions. These year long projects are intended to foster collaboration among CHHE members and generate preliminary data for larger grant applications to NIEHS.
