Exposure to per-and poly-fluorinated substances is increasingly in the public eye. The National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine released a report advising increase surveillance screening for those exposed to high levels. These recommendations did not include mechanisms or frequency of screening. This project aims to assist patients and providers with informed discussion to guide risk based screening.
