  • 9/2019 - In September 2019, CDC/ATSDR awarded research funding to seven recipients for the PFAS multi-site health study.  A team including the Pennsylvania Department of Health, RTI International and Temple University was selected to look at exposures in Montgomery and Bucks Counties. This study will expand the science about the relationships between PFAS exposure and certain health outcomes and it will help people better understand their risk for health effects.  CDC/ATSDR is in the process of finalizing the multi-site research protocol that all the research recipients will follow.  Similar to other research studies, the first year includes preparation for recruitment strategies, data collection and management and community involvement while the study recipients are finalizing all necessary approvals.  More information about the multi-site study is available on CDC/ATSDR’s website at https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/pfas/related_activities.html#Multi-Site-Health-Study
