Exposure to Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances and Markers of Liver Injury
Join us on September 14, 2022 at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern to hear Dr. Vaia Lida Chatzi discuss research linking Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) exposure to liver injury.

PFAS are very persistent and ubiquitous in our environment. They are used in many industrial and consumer products and bioaccumulate in the food chain and in humans. During this webinar Dr. Vaia Lida Chatzi will present a new systematic review and meta-analysis looking at the weight and strength of the evidence of 85 animal and 24 human studies investigating exposure to PFAS and markers of liver injury. The study found that there is consistent evidence linking PFAS exposure to liver injury in both rodents and humans. The webinar will conclude with a discussion on paths forward for future research looking at next-generation PFAS, mixtures, and potential developmental effects, as well as policy implications.

This webinar will be moderated by Jerry Heindel, PhD, founder and director of Healthy Environment and Endocrine Disruptor Strategies (HEEDS). It will last for 45 minutes and will be recorded for our call and webinar archive.

This webinar series is sponsored by the EDC Strategies Partnership. The EDC Strategies Partnership is co-chaired by Sharyle Patton (Commonweal Biomonitoring Resource Center), Jerry Heindel and Sarah Howard (Environmental Health Sciences' HEEDS, Healthy Environment and Endocrine Disruptor Strategies), Génon Jensen (HEAL, Health and Environment Alliance), and Kristin Schafer (Commonweal CHE, Collaborative on Health and the Environment).
