    The National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), as part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is unique in the federal government for its focus on public health issues related to the environment. Our work covers the life span, from preventing birth defects and developmental disorders to helping an increasingly older population minimize the impact of disabilities on their lives. As the pace of technologic advances continues to accelerate, NCEH must maintain its position as a leader in environmental health in order to ensure that the price of progress is not reduced health for Americans or the global community. The genetic revolution has already changed- and will continue to shape- public health policy and the delivery of public health services. NCEH is prepared to meet these and future challenges. However, we must continue to attract and retain top scientists and to develop and maintain state-of-the-art laboratories and computer resources if we are to perpetuate the Center's scientific excellence- excellence we share with our state, local, and international partners who are delivering prevention services.
