On September 26-27, 2019, the National Academy of Sciences will host a workshop in Washington D.C., U.S. titled “Identifying Opportunities to Understand, Control, and Prevent Exposure to PFAS” (per- and polyfluoalkyl substances). The workshop is the first within the Environmental Health Matters Initiative (EHMI) and “will explore human exposure to PFAS, discuss options for controlling PFAS exposures, and consider innovative approaches for preventing PFAS exposures.” The workshop sets its goal as to “highlight what various sectors can do to advance our understanding of the extent of human exposure to PFAS and to reduce or prevent PFAS exposure.” The event is open to the public, free of charge, and will be live streamed, recorded, and made publicly available online afterwards. The event’s program and registration are both available online.
