Environmental Health Clinics & Services
The Baylor Environmental Health Clinics provide clinical services for patients with symptoms or disease that are likely to be caused or exacerbated by exposure to environmental hazards. The clinical services include a comprehensive patient exposure history, followed by a home-based exposure assessment and intervention. The EHCs currently target patients with asthma that is not well controlled and patients with lead poisoning.
The purpose of the Environmental Health Service (EHS) is to improve the understanding of the relationships between exposures to environmental health hazards and health effects and to reduce adverse health effects caused or exacerbated by such exposures, especially in the Houston metropolitan area and along the Gulf Coast. The activities of the Environmental Health Service are organized into four core areas: Professional Education, Clinical Services, Research and Community Outreach.
