Education and Communications

Translating Science for Change

We work to inform policy staff, health care professionals, and the public about how harmful chemicals put into our air, food, water, homes, schools, and workplaces impact our health - and what we can do to fix the problem.

Health Professional Education

We work with professional health organizations and academic institutions to ensure that clinicians understand how the environment impacts health.


What good is our science if nobody knows about it? Communicating our scientific findings is central to our mission.

Science Translation

We do more than conduct the science, we translate the findings for use in advocacy, policy, and health care settings.

To address the growing impact of harmful chemicals on reproduction, pregnancy, and child development, we guided the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) - the global voice for women's health - on their 2015 opinion on toxic chemicals. Watch our video to learn more about why doctors are talking toxics!
