NEWMOA has partnered with the Northeast Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC), the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM), the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC), and others to organize the Northeast Conference on the Science of PFAS: Public Health & the Environment.

The goals of the conference are:

  • Ensure that local, state, and federal action to address PFAS contamination is informed by the most current and reliable science
  • Facilitate networking and information-sharing among key stakeholders on PFAS topics
  • Identify important gaps in the science and policy to help inform future research

The conference organizers expect conference attendance to be approximately 400 people, including:

  • Local, state, and federal government officials
  • Academic researchers and students
  • Consultants and vendors
  • Companies that use, make, or sell products that contain PFAS 
  • Non-governmental and environmental organizations

Draft agenda framework (as of July 2019): 

The conference will include plenary and concurrent sessions and an exhibit and poster area. The concurrent sessions are anticipated to cover these suggested topics:

  • Health Impacts & Environmental Behavior
  • Treatment, Remediation, & Disposal
  • PFAS Uses & Alternatives 
  • Environmental Sampling & Analysis

There will be ample time during the breaks to allow for networking and exhibit and poster viewing.
