You may qualify for one or both studies. The more people—children and adults— who take part, the more we’ll learn how PFAS affects our bodies.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) are studying the health effects of drinking water that contains PFAS in and around the Pease International Tradeport.

Silent Spring Institute and its partners are studying how exposures to PFAS in drinking water may affect children’s immune systems. The study is enrolling preschool-aged children born to mothers who worked at the Tradeport before 2014, when elevated levels of PFAS were discovered in the drinking water.
