Our mission is to protect, promote and enhance the health and well being of all people and the environment in our county. Our Children’s Environmental Health section focuses on identifying and reducing environmental risks that affect the children of Guilford County through education and regulations in partnership with public and private entities.

Some of what we do includes: evaluations of all public and private school cafeterias, school buildings, childcare facilities and adult day care facilities. We also collaborate with Guilford County parents, local pediatricians, and school nurses to provide Healthy Home assessments. We look for and identify asthma triggers and other environmental hazards in the home, at school and childcare centers.

Our staff is responsible for enforcement of the Guilford County Department of Public Health, Board of Health's Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Ordinance. We investigate and seek remediation of any known lead hazards associated with a child having an elevated blood lead level.

Children’s Environmental Health strives to protect the health and well being of all children in Guilford County. Ensuring the future of our children by protecting them today.
