About the Event
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) recently released the consensus study report, Why Indoor Chemistry Matters, sponsored by EPA, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, CDC, and NIEHS. This webinar will present the main conclusions and recommendations of the report, which identifies gaps in the current understanding of indoor chemistry and new approaches that can be applied to measure, manage, and limit chemical exposures. Dr. David Dorman, who served as Chair of the study committee, will summarize high-level main messages from the report, followed by a deeper dive into the report’s findings related to the management and removal of contaminants indoors.
