University Collaborations on Environmental, Drinking Water Supply, and Human Health Effects

Join the North Carolina Coastal Federation and our partners to learn about ongoing research to better understand the PFAS chemicals in our drinking water and environment and possible effects on our health.

The PFAST Network is a collaboration of researchers from universities across the state who have received funding from the North Carolina General Assembly to study the environmental and health effects of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and the extent to which these compounds have infiltrated the state’s waterways. This effort puts the state’s best scientific minds to work helping to inform the public, regulatory agencies and policymakers involved in this serious issue.

Join us on May 31 to hear directly from the five teams of PFAST Network researchers. This educational forum will include a question and answer period, and a free reception following the forum to allow the public to engage directly with the experts. 

The public forum and following reception are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required; Limited seating is available. To register for this event, click on the ‘Register Now’ button below.
