      Subject: ATSDR/NCEH public health consultation on problem drywall

      From: Tim.Wallace@...

      Date: Fri, 2 May 2014 20:37:51 +0000


      FYI.  The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) and the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), part of the US Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) released a public health consultation regarding problem drywall.  You can review the media advisory, the fact sheet, the consultation and the supporting documents here:  http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/drywall/

      It is my understanding that ATSDR/NCEH is working with the Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units (PEHSU) and the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics (AOEC) to update a fact sheet for physicians on the subject.  I believe they will include the fact sheet on their webpage when it is ready.
