Biomonitoring: Making a Difference Videos


Using advanced laboratory science and innovative techniques, CDC’s Division of Laboratory Sciences in the National Center for Environmental Health have contributed to the body of scientific knowledge about people’s exposures to chemicals in the environment.

By improving laboratory methods to measure selected chemicals in people; preventing health effects from exposure to toxic chemicals in the environment, and responding to terrorism and public health emergencies involving chemicals, the laboratory has been in the vanguard of efforts to improve people’s health across the nation and around the world.

This video presentation is an introduction to CDC’s National Biomonitoring Program and the laboratory measurement data found in CDC’s National Report on Human Exposure to Chemicals and CDC’s National Report on Selected Biochemical Indicators of Diet and Nutrition in the U.S. Population.
