ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH MATTERS INITIATIVE (EHMI) is a new, large-scale effort of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine to work across disciplines and sectors in developing lasting solutions to improve health today and for generations to come.
Building upon the National Academies’ legacy of work in environmental health* and leveraging our ability to convene top experts, we will bring together corporate, government, and university leaders, along with other engaged stakeholders in this field to
- explore the latest science,
- identify promising options and solutions, and
- create innovative pathways toward improving environmental health.
Whether it’s addressing tomorrow’s decisions about optimizing chemical usage in consumer products or responding to a sudden contamination issue, the path forward is multifaceted. Embedding environmental health into future decisions and assessing available options depends on leadership and ongoing dialog within the scientific, corporate, international, and public health spheres.
The EHMI coordinates ongoing National Academies work and develop additional activities to further address complex environmental health issues.
