ATSDR - Safeguarding Communities from Harmful Chemicals: A Five-Part Webinar Series

APHA and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are proud to co-sponsor a five-part webinar series highlighting the vital work of the ATSDR. The series explores the Agency's role as an integral partner in: determining chemical threats; supporting communities with their environmental health concerns; protecting children and vulnerable populations; and supporting the specific needs of Native Tribes.  

Welcome back to the ATSDR series! In our fifth and final webinar, Working with Tribal Communities, participants will gain insights regarding environmental health concerns of Native Tribal communities and how ATSDR effectively supports tribal governments in addressing these concerns. This is a webinar not to miss!
