What is the Biomonitoring Massachusetts Study?

Biomonitoring is a way to measure environmental chemicals in the human body. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) conducted a biomonitoring study as part of a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Biomonitoring Massachusetts Study will help DPH to prevent health effects from exposure to certain chemicals. The study will support CDC’s National Biomonitoring Program. Participants were enrolled in the study from three groups: residents in communities with high risk of potential exposure to certain chemicals, individuals involved in a chemical emergency, and adults (18+) across the state.
