In addition to providing clinical services, the staff and affiliated staff are doing research to answer important questions in pediatric environmental health, including:

  • How do lead and mercury affect children of different ages?
  • What is the best way to treat children with lead and mercury poisoning? When should medications that bind metals be used?
  • For adolescents that work: what type of toxic exposures do they have, and how can overexposures be prevented?
  • What do other health professionals, such as pediatric primary care providers, need to know about pediatric environmental health?
  • What are the best ways to promote education about pediatric environmental health issues?
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
