Event description
The Guidance on PFAS Testing and Health Outcomes – Western U.S. Town Hall

About this event

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are chemicals with almost ubiquitous exposure in the United States. Considering the vastness of this exposure, it is difficult to know who, when, how, and what to test, as well as the risks of testing.

The ongoing National Academies study, Guidance on PFAS Testing and Health Outcomes, will provide advice for clinicians about PFAS testing and how test results should inform clinical care. Additionally, our expert committee will examine the health outcomes associated with PFAS exposure and will develop principles clinicians can use to advise patients on exposure reduction.

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 for a town hall where community representatives and stakeholders from the Western United States will share their experiences and perspectives with the study committee regarding PFAS testing.

States and Territories Include: Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Guam, Marshall Islands, Palau, American Samoa, Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
