CHEJ Training Call: The Impact of PFAS

July 18, 2023 , 12:00 pm 1:00 pm EDT

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are an emerging public health threat. Nicknamed the “forever” chemical, they have contaminated drinking water across the U.S. PFAS are toxic at extremely low levels, are highly persistent in the environment, and bioaccumulate in humans.

This Training Call will discuss the history of manufacturing of PFAS, their exposure routes, their impacts on human health, ways you can decrease your exposure, and legislation across the U.S that has recently developed to fight it. Additional focus will be on the PFAS issue in Wisconsin.
