The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded Michigan a $4 million grant to improve monitoring of residents’ toxic chemical exposure. Biomonitoring is the measurement of environmental chemicals in body tissues or fluids to determine the amount of chemical that actually enters the body. Data collected from biomonitoring helps identify at-risk population groups and assess the effectiveness of interventions to prevent harm.
The grant funding will be used to support two new programs. The first, the Michigan Chemical Exposure Monitoring program, will test for chemicals in a group of adults selected to represent Michigan adults statewide. The second program will measure PFAS among Michigan firefighters to improve understanding of the ways they may be exposed to PFAS on the job.
