Science Café: Water Policy, PFAS, and Public Health

New regulations for drinking water are on the way! For the first time, the EPA has proposed federal limits on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). PFAS include a large class of chemicals found in cleaning products, nonstick cookware, firefighting chemicals, and food packaging, among other materials. PFAS contaminate many drinking water sources throughout the US.

We'll discuss current research on the health impacts of PFAS and learn what the new regulations say. What difference will they make? Our speakers include Ann Arbor Drinking Water Quality Manager Becky Lahr, as well as Justin Colacino and Jackie Goodrich of the U-M's School of Public Health.

Science Cafés provide an opportunity for audiences to discuss current research topics with experts in an informal setting.

Hors d’oeuvres at 5:30 p.m.
The program begins at 6:00 p.m.
Seating is limited—come early.
