“The ANU’s National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health is holding focus group discussions for people who have experience of, and views about, PFAS health risks.

Paterson MP Meryl Swanson encouraged people in the Williamtown, Salt Ash and Fullerton Cove communities to take part in the discussions and ensure their experiences were heard.

‘We are all fed up with waiting for the Federal Government to release its plan about how those affected by contamination from RAAF Base Williamtown will be given support and options,’ Ms Swanson told News Of The Area…

The PFAS Health Study says it will listen to the experiences of residents and workers in the Williamtown red zone and that this will ‘shape the direction’ of the ANU research team’s next phase of investigations…

According to the ANU’s invitation, the discussions are likely to take between one and two hours, and participants will receive a ‘[A] small token of our appreciation ($50 EFTPOS voucher)’ on completion of the discussion.

If you’d like to take part in one of the focus group discussions, or if you’d like more information about the study, please ring Ms Susan Trevenar on 02 6125 6079 or email pfas.health.study@anu.edu.au.”
