The Finger Lakes Children’s Environmental Health Center Project ECHO provides case-based learning and multidisciplinary consultation services in 15 counties of the Finger Lakes region. Our goal is to create a learning community to improve health care providers’ capacity to:

  • Provide anticipatory guidance on environmental health (EH) issues to pregnant and breastfeeding women and families with children
  • Answer questions patients bring about EH topics (or know where to easily find answers)
  • Connect families with resources in their community
  • Become aware of specific environmental health issues in our communities
  • Refer cases to the Finger Lakes Children’s Environmental Health Center as needed

The Finger Lakes Children’s Environmental Health Center staff serves as the hub team and will bring in expertise as needed from other NYS CEHCs, community agencies, American Lung Assoc., NYSDOH, DEC, etc.


Sessions occur monthly on the third Wednesday from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. For more information about participating in a future session, email or call (585) 276-3105.
