LANSING, Mich. -The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is enrolling West Michigan residents for the nationwide PFAS Multi-site Study (MSS), a project supported by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
Residents in the Parchment/Cooper Township and Belmont/Rockford areas may call 877-256-8073 today to check their eligibility and join this important PFAS research.
"Participating in this study will help contribute to nationwide efforts to learn more about PFAS and health" said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for heath. "Study results will guide decisions to better protect public health, including community members exposed to PFAS across the country."
MSS is recruiting adults who are age 18 and older and children ages 4 through 17 (with parent or guardian permission). Study participants will provide blood and urine samples, as well as their medical histories, and receive up to $75 in gift cards for their participation.
