Biomonitoring Legacy and Emerging Great Lakes Contaminants in Susceptible Great Lakes Populations

The purposes of this FOA is for the awardee to conduct a biomonitoring program to assess body burden of legacy contaminants and chemicals of emerging concern in susceptible Great Lakes populations in areas not monitored previously under CDC-RFA-TS10-1001 and CDC-RFA-TS13-1302 cooperative agreement programs.


which contaminants are getting into human populations informs public health officials and guides environmental public health action throughout the Great Lakes restoration process.

Awardee will conduct the following activities during the project period:
1) conduct a biomonitoring program to assess exposure to legacy and emerging contaminants in a susceptible population(s) in the Great Lakes basin, particularly in those who are at higher exposure risk, 2) use the biomonitoring results to develop a plan guiding and advancing public health actions and safeguarding the people in their jurisdiction from harmful exposure, 3) conduct multi-level communication and outreaches to high-risk populations, key audiences and stakeholders, and general populations to communicate the risks and benefits of Great Lakes fish consumption, and, to promote healthy fish consumption choices that minimize the risk of contaminant exposure, 4) establish and strengthen collaborations and coordination in biomonitoring activities and projects.

ATSDR anticipates the following outcomes during the project period:
1) improved and expanded knowledge about Great Lakes-specific environmental chemical exposures, 2) increased use of high-quality biomonitoring results as bases for public health actions in the Great Lakes region, 3) increased awareness about chemical exposures and risk and benefit of fish consumption in target population, 4) increased awareness of biomonitoring as a tool for exposure assessment and use of biomonitoring results to guide public health actions among federal and state governments, policymakers, and stakeholders, 5) increased ability at the state and local level to monitor and track Great Lakes-specific exposures, 6) strong collaborations for biomonitoring activities and projects.
