Environmental Health Sciences K-12 Education - NIEHS - The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is playing an increasingly important role in numerous public health issues because of the desire of the public to understand the effects and risks to human health from exposure to physical and chemical agents. There is a critical need to develop a mechanism for educating the general public about environmental health issues. To address this need, the NIEHS has initiated a K-12 education program that consists of three initiatives: Instructional Material Development, Teacher Enhancement and Development, and Environmental Health Sciences as an Integrative Context.
