April 5's presentation on the the National Drinking-Water Exposure Research: USGS-Community Partnership Studies will be given by Kelly Smalling.

Kelly Smalling is a Research Hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, New Jersey Water Science Center. She is Co-lead, along with Paul Bradley of the USGS Environmental Health Program, Drinking-Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Integrated Science Team. Kelly’s research is focused on the actual versus perceived health risks of contaminant mixtures to human health and the environment (including fish and wildlife).

Title: National Drinking-Water Exposure Research: USGS-Community Partnership Studies
Abstract: Current understanding of the role of drinking-water contaminant-mixture exposures in human-health outcomes is incomplete, in part, because comprehensive multi-contaminant chemical and biological investigations in the United States (US) and worldwide are not commonly conducted at the point of consumption and, consequently, do not capture biochemical changes that may occur during distribution and delivery, whether via public-supply infrastructure, private-well/premise plumbing, or commercial packaging (“bottled” water). This presentation provides an overview of the U.S. Geological Survey, Environmental Health Program research assessing human exposures to and potential effects of contaminant mixtures in point-of-use drinking water.
