For Health Professionals

In addition to supporting research on the health effects of environmental agents, NIEHS has played a leadership role in applying that knowledge to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of health conditions related to environmental exposures. This includes the development of educational materials to assist health care professionals in identifying potentially hazardous substances and evaluating environmentally exposed patients. The materials also include guidelines on environmental interventions that can reduce or eliminate the exposures that trigger these illnesses.
