The Mid-Atlantic Center for Children’s Health and the Environment presents
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS): Health Provider Series
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are chemicals that are widely used in consumer goods and can be found in drinking water throughout the US. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) special committee recently examined the health outcomes associated with the most widely studied PFAS and made recommendations on who, when, how, and what to test, as well as the risks of testing. This series will provide information on the principles used for framing clinician decision making when there is uncertainty in outcomes in the scientific literature, what potential health effects may be associated with exposure, recommendations for testing and clinical follow-up, and special considerations when engaging environmental justice communities.
Participants will engage in the bi-directional virtual knowledge network by sharing clinical challenges and learning from experts and peers.
