Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments
Ellicott City, MD 21042
Mission: The Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments (ANHE) is a network of nurses from around the country (and world) who are acting on the notion that our environment and health are inextricably connected. ANHE is a group of nurses from all walks of the profession – hospital-based, public health, school-based, academics, and advanced practice, to name a few. ANHE is helping to integrate environmental health into nursing education, greening workplaces, incorporating environmental exposure questions into patient histories, providing anticipatory guidance to pregnant women and parents about environmental risks to children, implementing research that addresses environmental health questions, and advocating for environmental health in workplaces and governmental institutions.
