NAPE was developed to work with the national medical specialties and subspecialties (88 total), with national, state and local medical societies, and with individual physicians to deal with the impacts of environmental pollutants on the organs, systems or disease processes best known to them. NAPE informs physicians, patients and the public about the impact of pollutants and the necessary personal and public health steps that should be taken to prevent, reduce or eliminate them. NAPE also involves physicians in global environmental issues such as protection of biological diversity. NAPE’s theme: “Pollution prevention is disease prevention.”
