Attendees of the 2019 PFAS Conference at Northeastern University (June 10, 2019)

Conference Date: June 10-12, 2019

Hosted at: Northeastern University, Boston

The Organizing Committee of the 2019 PFAS Conference is happy to announce that our second National conference was a great success, thanks to the work of everyone involved. The significant growth in the number of contaminated sites, public awareness, community organizing, public policy, advisories and regulation, scientific research, and media attention called us to once again bring together the array of participants and stakeholders that made the first conference so successful. Below, you can find the schedule, recorded panels and presentations, and speaker biographies from the 2019 Conference.
