Abstract: The Consortium for Environmental Education in Medicine (CEEM) is dedicated to advancing humans' quality of life by demonstrating the close links between human health and the environment. CEEM's goal is to make the relationship of environment to human health an integral part of medical education. In January 1999, CEEM became a program of Second Nature (www.secondnature.org), a Boston based nonprofit organization working to help faculty, staff, and administrators at institutions of higher education to integrate environmental sustainability into their curriculum and campus operating practices.

CEEM's website houses a newly expanded collection of resources and tools that support the incorporation of environment and health perspectives into curricula and programs including:
* materials contributed by National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Environmental and Occupational Medicine Academic Award recipients (/www.ceem.org/niehs)
* over 40 course projects using innovative teaching methods to educate about environment and health
* over 45 syllabi for environmental health and environmental medicine courses
* over 60 links to organizations and people who are valuable resources for information about environmental health
* over 360 bibliographic references related to environment and health
* stories of initiatives around environment and health at higher education institutions
* selected essays and reports about the need for environmental health and sustainability perspectives in higher education.
