HSPH-NIEHS Colloquium Series: Jane Hoppin, ScD

October 12, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Join us for our 2022-2023 colloquium series on Environmental Health in Action. This month, we welcome Jane Hoppin, ScD, professor of biological sciences at North Carolina State and Director of the NC State Center for Human Health and the Environment.  Dr. Hoppin’s work focuses on environmentally impacted communities and working with them to characterize exposure, understand health effects, and share results throughout the community.  This work includes investigation of pesticide exposure and respiratory and allergic impacts.  More recently, her work has focused on characterizing human exposure to per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in communities impacted by contaminated drinking water.  She is a member of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine Panel that made health recommendations for PFAS exposed populations.  In October 2019, she was named a fellow in the Collegium Ramazzini. In February 2022, Dr. Hoppin received the James E. Holshouer Award for Public Service from the UNC Board of Governors.  Dr. Hoppin received her BS in Environmental Toxicology from the University of California at Davis and her SM and ScD from the Harvard School of Public Health.

The title of this presentation is: Investigating PFAS Contamination in the Cape Fear River Basin of North Carolina: the GenX Exposure Study
