The National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures, a collaborative initiative by CDC and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), recently released “Addressing Public Health and Chemicals Exposures: An Action Agenda, according to a post on the website of the American Industrial Hygiene Association.

Developed by the National Conversation Leadership Council, the Action Agenda provides government agencies and other organizations with recommendations on protecting the public from chemical hazards.

The Action Agenda features chapters on promoting health and wellness in vulnerable communities affected by environmental health decision making, strengthening the capacity of the public health and health provider work force to address the needs of individuals exposed to chemical dangers, and reducing harmful chemical exposures through prevention, planning and coordination. The document is divided into sectors for communities, government, industry, nongovernmental organizations, public health and health care and research organizations.
