The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is working to identify links between exposures to PFAS and health outcomes. We are doing this through two community-based studies: (1) the Michigan PFAS Exposure and Health Study (MiPEHS), and (2) the Multi-Site Study (MSS).

 

 

MiPEHS (pronounced: my-pez) is the Michigan PFAS Exposure and Health Study, conducted by MDHHS in the City of Parchment and Cooper Township in Kalamazoo County and the Belmont/Rockford area in Kent County. See the MiPEHS webpage for more details on that study.

MSS is a study funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) in seven communities across the United States. ATSDR has partnered with MDHHS to conduct MSS in the same communities as MiPEHS.
