Exposure and Health Investigations

Exposure and health investigations of substances in the environment help to increase understanding of the risks a substance may pose to health.

Studies can involve collection of environmental and biological samples, administration of survey instruments (e.g., questionnaires or interviews), analysis and interpretation of data, and dissemination of results to study participants and others.
