Toxic Chemicals and Public Health

PSR-NY is committed to reducing exposure to toxic chemicals in the environment, especially among the most vulnerable populations like pregnant women, children, and farm workers and their families. We’re working to engage PSR-NY members on policy and regulatory issues related to toxic exposures.

Nationally, PSR works to reduce toxic exposures through chemical policy reform and practitioner education.


Pediatric Toolkit

One resource for reducing exposures is PSR's Pediatric Environmental Health Toolkit, an easy-to-use reference guide for health providers. It contains user-friendly health education materials and curriculum for training trainers on preventing exposures to toxic chemicals and other substances that affect health. The Toolkit was re-released in 2017 with updated information on emerging chemicals of concern.
