The Maryland Environmental Health Network takes action to protect human health by addressing environmental policies and practices that shape the conditions for health in Maryland. We accomplish this through broad application of an equity lens and consistently raising the question of who is most harmed by pollution and environmental degradation.
We envision a Maryland where everyone – regardless of socioeconomic status or race – enjoys clean air, water, and food, and benefits equally from safe environments in homes, schools and communities. We envision a Maryland where human health is understood to be a function of economic, environmental, and social factors which must be balanced to achieve a high quality of life
The Maryland Environmental Health Network improves the health of Marylanders by minimizing exposures to environmental threats and toxic chemicals, through effective environmental legislation and policy.
In all of our endeavours, we are guided by 4 values:
