National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures
The National Environmental Health Association partnered with the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the
Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry to provide mini-grants in support of the
National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures. The National Conversation is working with many organizations and the public to develop an action agenda that will outline how the United States can manage chemicals in ways that are safe and healthy for all people.
