Study Goals

Our PFAS research study is based in the North Carolina Piedmont region and includes five objectives as described below. A team of Duke faculty, staff, and students from the Nicholas School of the Environment, the Pratt School of Engineering, the Nicholas Institute for Policy Solutions, and the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology are collaborating on this work. We seek to understand the sources of PFAS to the Haw River, evaluate exposure in affected communities, investigate potential health impacts, and work with local stakeholders to provide important information to benefit the development of local policies and initiatives to mitigate health risks.
