What’s Next?

ATSDR is an innovative agency that seeks to protect communities more effectively and efficiently from harmful health effects of hazardous environmental exposures. Over the next year and beyond, novel efforts will focus on expanding our health equity and environmental justice work, continuing our work as a leader in understanding PFAS exposure, modernizing data strategies, and conducting an extensive data analysis of the Camp Lejeune cancer incidence and mortality data. These projects will continue to advance the mission of ATSDR to protect communities from harmful health effects related to exposure to natural and man-made hazardous substances.
