The Fifth Annual CHHE Symposium Part Four - GenX: Research to Respond to Community Needs
The discovery of GenX in the drinking water for Wilmington, NC, catalyzed PFAS research in CHHE. Members not only shifted their research to focus on these emerging contaminants, but also learned to embrace community engagement. Join us for a discussion about PFAS research within the Center.
Moderated by Jane Hoppin (NC State) and Suzanne Lea (ECU)

CHHEK Survey!
Dear CHHE Members;
Please complete the 2021 CHHE Knowledgebase (CHHEK) survey. The old CHHEK survey information was no longer accurate so we wiped it all and we are starting with a fresh blank slate and a new CHHEK survey version.  

CHHEK is a searchable database and is a powerful resource for our CHHE community. It provides information about the expertise of our members, available instruments and other shared resources as well as summary statistics about our diverse research community. Full participation in the survey by the CHHE membership is necessary to assure CHHEK is representative of our membership and reflects our collective expertise. 

Please take 5 minutes to complete the survey
