Workshop on Identifying and Reducing Environmental Health Risks of Chemicals in Our Society
The Institute of Medicine (IOM)'s Roundtable on Environmental Health Sciences, Research, and Medicine will host a workshop on Identifying and Reducing Environmental Health Risks of Chemicals in Our Society. Industrial chemicals include chemicals used in industrial processes or commercial products, not including those found in food, pesticides, or pharmaceuticals.
Through presentations and discussions, the workshop will examine successes and areas for improvement within current regulatory programs for assessing industrial chemical safety, frameworks for chemical prioritization to inform targeted testing and risk management strategies, concepts of sustainability and green chemistry that support the design and use of safer alternatives, and efforts to reduce the risk of chemicals in our society. A draft agenda is available online.
This event is free and open to the public. A live webcast of the event will also be available for those unable to attend in-person. Registration is required regardless of in-person or online attendance.
