Presentation: Pharmaceuticals, Personal Care Products and Nanoparticles: Effects on Aquatic Ecosystems and Human Health 

Pharmaceuticals, personal care products and other emerging contaminants find their way into freshwater systems around the world after use. Several of these chemicals have been found to be linked to potential impacts on the health of organisms in those ecosystems. This talk will discuss the potential impacts, the link to human health, and ways in which these issues may be addressed by the health community.

Presentation: What Counts? Estimating the Health Benefits of Regulating Environmental Chemicals

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for making evidence-based policies based on the hazards and risks of industrial chemicals under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the law covering chemicals in commerce. How EPA determines chemical hazards and risks, and ultimately the health benefits of regulating chemicals in commerce, will impact the health of our families and communities for generations to come. This presentation will discuss EPA’s methods and describe how health professionals and scientists are playing a critical role in helping to ensure EPA will estimate the true benefits of regulating environmental chemicals.
