2021 Year In Review

Despite ongoing pandemic challenges in 2021, ATSDR adapted and continued to fulfill its mission to protect communities from health effects related to exposure to harmful hazardous substances found in the environment. ATSDR leveraged meaningful relationships at the state and local levels to address harmful odors in a New Jersey shopping center, created a website to highlight the work of APPLETREE grantees, connected ALS patients to clinical trials, and advanced the knowledge base of PFAS. In these stories, we encourage you to see for yourselves how ATSDR continuously strives to protect families and communities from harmful environmental exposures.
