Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a diverse group of anthropogenic chemicals used in a wide range of consumer and industrial products. PFAS do not easily degrade and some compounds have been shown to accumulate in the environment and in our bodies. Exposure to certain types of PFAS have been linked to serious health effects. This symposium will help to educate attendees on the common dangers of PFAS and discuss regulatory perspective, approaches for correct use, and proper treatment of PFAS contamination in the environment.
