National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures

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.
