long been a leader in the study, prevention and treatment of environmental and occupational disease," said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and CEO of The Mount Sinai Medical Center and Dean of Mount Sinai School of Medicine. "We are proud to be part of this landmark study which holds so much promise for the children of Queens and our nation."

"Many of the diseases that the Children's Study will examine obesity, injury, asthma, schizophrenia, autism and childhood cancer have reached epidemic proportions, and cost Americans nearly $642 billion annually," said Leo Trasande, MD, the Mount Sinai Site Director for the Queens Vanguard Center. "The National Children's Study will form the basis of child health guidance and policy for generations to come, and will not only to improve the lives of so many children, but save our nation billions of dollars in health care costs."

The National Children's Study is led by a consortium of federal agency partners, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services -- through the National Institutes of Health (the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention -- and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The Center for Children's Health and the Environment is the nation's first academic research and policy center to examine the links between exposure to toxic pollutants and childhood illness. CCHE was established in 1998 within the Department of Community and Preventive Medicine of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. The mission of the Center for Children's Health and the Environment (CCHE) of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine is to protect children against environmental threats to health.
