CHE-BUSRP call on PFAS a success
In December, BUSRP partnered with the Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE) for a call on polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). PFAS have been found across the country, exceeding the EPA health advisory levels in drinking water supplies serving over six million residents according to a Harvard study. 150 people called in to learn more about the health effects, community responses and challenges for analysis.
Dr. Tom Webster (Project 2), Shaina Kasper of Community Engagement Core partner Toxics Action Center, and Dr. Nancy Rothman of New Environmental Horizons, Inc., spoke on the call, moderated by Dr. Wendy Heiger-Bernays (RTC). This call is 14th in a series organized by CHE and BUSRP aimed at communicating the latest science and resources from BUSRP and partners.
