The Oregon Center for Environmental Health (OCEH) is a non-profit, member-based organization that was founded in 1996 by a group of Oregonians who saw the need for a statewide organization dedicated to reducing and eliminating toxic chemicals that are long-lasting and build up in living tissues, threatening the health and reproductive viability of humans and wildlife. Students use the OCEH as a practicum site for learning about sustainability and environmental health issues.
