The Mid-Atlantic Center for Children's Health and the Environment is one of ten Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units. We serve all those who live and work in Maryland, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia. At MACCHE, we are dedicated to informing health professionals, parents, caregivers, and concerned citizens about children and their specific needs and risks associated with environmental health.

At MACCHE, we have two many services: 1. Telephone and Clinical Consultations: Parents, physicians, nurses, departments of public health, and others can contact MACCHE toll-free at 1-866-622-2431 for questions or concerns about environmental health. Clinical consultations are also available at Children’s National Medical Center for children with health problems that may be related to their environment. 2. Health Education: In an effort to increase the knowledge and awareness of children’s environmental health issues among pediatricians and other health care providers, the physicians and environmental health experts in MACCHE speak at hospital grand rounds and other ongoing seminars. They also promote awareness of environmental health hazards by conducting specific seminars to educate academic medical and nursing faculty as well as recruit pediatric sub-specialists to assist in development of specialty-specific environmental health information. We receive many questions and requests on topics such as: lead, mercury, arsenic poisoning, healthy homes issues, mold, pesticides, BPA and other chemical exposures.

Mission: To improve the recognition, evaluation and management of environmental health problems among the children of Federal Region III, which includes Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
