Following the closure of the National Children’s Study, NIH is planning a new program to understand the influence of environmental exposures (e.g., physical, chemical, biological, psychosocial) on children’s health and development. This new program is called Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO).


NIH will present webinars on the proposed ECHO program on July 22, 27, and 29. The webinars will include a Q & A period, and we encourage you to submit questions during the event. You may also submit questions in advance by email at


You may also learn more about ECHO and submit your comments online through the Request for Information.


The deadline for comments is August 14, 2015.


Thank you for your input as we work to improve the health of our nation’s children.
