National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures

Work Groups

Six work groups were convened to research and make recommendations on cross-cutting public health and chemical exposure issues. Work groups were formed in late summer 2009 through a multi-stage membership selection process.

Draft work group reports, comments that were submitted on them, and final work group reports are available on RESOLVE’s Web site.
