Greenwich, CT

The Mount Sinai Children’s Environmental Health Center (CEHC) hosted its fifth annual benefit luncheon, Greening Our Children, on Monday, May 7 in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Thanks to the extraordinary work of Benefit Chairs Jeanine Behr Getz and Heather Jervis, and Honorary Chair Tanya L. Murphy, over 500 attended to raise over $500,000 to advance new research in children’s environmental health at Mount Sinai – the global leader in this field.

This year’s event taught guests how to become environmental advocates, honoring U.S. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg with the inaugural Mount Sinai Champion of Children Award.  The luncheon also showcased a Green Expo – featuring over 37 environmentally safe products – and research updates from the CEHC.  Director Philip J. Landrigan, MD, MSc shared highlights from the past year, outlining some of the Center’s most groundbreaking publications.  Six researchers from the CEHC also presented posters on the most innovative topics in children’s environmental health – including the impact of chemicals on the developing brain, toxic exposures in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and the development of a new tool to unearth the most common childhood diseases.
