Community Advisory Panel
The University at Albany School of Public Health (UAlbany SPH) and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) have received federal funding to study PFAS and possible health effects. Residents from Hoosick Falls and the surrounding area, and Newburgh, New York will be invited to participate in this important study.
As part of this study, UAlbany SPH and the NYSDOH will establish a Community Advisory Panel (CAP) in both communities. CAP members are voluntary, unpaid individuals from the Village of Hoosick Falls and the surrounding area, and Newburgh communities. The CAP for each community will advise us on our study progress and communication of study progress and results, relay community questions and concerns, and encourage community outreach and participation. The CAPs will be a critical partner in this study!
We will post upcoming CAP meetings and the registration link under the “Upcoming Events” section of our main study page and on our Facebook page. All CAP meetings will be open to the public.
