IOM Publishes Report on Reducing Environmental Health Risks of Chemicals in Our Society

Dean Goldman served as Vice-Chair of the Roundtable that Produced the Report

The Institute of Medicine’s Roundtable on Environmental Health Sciences, Research and Medicine held a workshop in November 2013 to discuss reducing potential environmental health risks related to new and existing industrial chemicals. Speakers at the workshop, including Dean Lynn R. Goldman, examined success stories as well as areas for improvement within the current regulatory framework for assessing industrial chemical safety. In April 2014 the IOM published a report that summarized the workshop.
