Deidre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology
Don Imus, left, isn't exactly popular in the Black Community right now, even though sympathy in the White Community has shifted to his side, but his wife Deidre, right, sets a fine example in the Green Community. All these colors. It does get interesting. The Deidre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology at Hackensack University Medical Center works to identify, control and prevent exposures to environmental factors that may cause health problems in children and ultimately adults. AAEA would be happy to work with Deidre's Center on asthma issues. She recently went to East Harlem to promote a plan for an environmentally friendly medical center at the Coriken Neighborhood Health Center.
The Center is devoted to the health and well being of children, their parents and the general public through a program of education and action designed to identify and eliminate the carcinogens and environmental factors that assault and ravage our lives. Her mission is vitally important because environmental causes for childhood cancer are not well known, yet children are the most vulnerable to many environmental insults
