This week on our NEW night Friday, January 22, 2021, we will be talking all about PFAS. Come join Dr. Laurel Schaider, a research scientist at Silent Spring Institute, to learn about PFAS contaminants in drinking water. Schaider is the lead investigator of the PFAS-REACH study, which is looking at how PFAS chemicals can affect children's immune systems. The study is currently enrolling preschool aged children in the Hyannis area to take part. Dr. Schaider will also talk about steps that all of us can take to reduce our family's exposure to these harmful chemicals.
Children's Study: https://pfas-exchange.org/childrenstudy/
They are looking for preschool-aged children whose mothers lived or worked in Hyannis before 2016. Participating in the study will help us advance science on the health effects associated with these emerging drinking water contaminants and inform drinking water guidelines that protect communities from potentially hazardous exposures. Participants will receive up to $100 in gift cards if they do the study, blood draw and the questionnaire.

“Let’s Talk About PFAS”--February 3rd webinar on PFAS chemicals in Cape Cod drinking water “Let’s Talk About PFAS” is a new monthly speaker series to help communities address contamination and reduce exposures. The first "Let's Talk About PFAS" webinar will focus on the presence of PFAS in U.S. drinking water, including on Cape Cod. PFAS are a class of harmful chemicals that are widely-used in consumer products and in firefighting foams and have been linked with a number of health problems. Join STEEP scientists and town water officials to learn how Cape Cod is addressing contamination, what the new state regulations mean for water utilities, and what private well owners can do to reduce their exposures.
