Identifying Opportunities to Understand, Control, and Prevent Exposure to PFAS: An EHMI Workshop

September 26 - September 27

The first workshop of the Environmental Health Matters Initiative (EHMI) will discuss human exposure to PFAS as well as innovative approaches to controlling and preventing exposure.

Poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are man-made chemical compounds used in fire-fighting foam, cleaning products, carpet coating treatments, non-stick cookware coating, and many other consumer products. PFAS chemicals do not degrade by natural metabolic processes. Their high mobility and persistence allow them to move easily through water and air, contaminating crop soil and drinking water aquifers.

Workshop participants will explore forward-thinking actions that need to be taken by various sectors to treat and prevent the spread of this dangerous chemical.

This event is public and free to attend. A webcast will be available for attendees who are unable to travel to D.C.
