The next Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions workshop will focus on the environmental health effects of microplastics.

Microplastics—pieces of plastic too small to be seen with the naked eye—are being found throughout the environment. This workshop will bring together the environmental health community to explore how emerging technologies and research strategies may be leveraged to address important environmental health questions about microplastics.

This event is public and free to attend. More information, including an agenda, will be available here in the coming weeks.
