Phase 1 Summary Report
The first results from MiPEHS Phase 1 (2020-2021) are available. Over 1,000 people from 700 households in the City of Parchment, Cooper Township, and the Belmont/Rockford Area participated in Phase 1.
The research team thanks the Michiganders who generously shared their time, health information, and blood samples for MiPEHS. The summaries shared here, and what we have learned about PFAS exposure would not be possible without the generosity of participants, dedication of the research staff, or funding from the State of Michigan.
Once available, we will post links on this website to ensure that any research articles and scientific publications using data from MiPEHS are free and available to the public.
