Subject: [CAProductStewardship] DTSC Symposium on Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products

This symposium is intended to provide an introduction to what PPCPs are, information regarding their detection and fate in the environment, and current views on the potential for human health and environmental impacts. 

I have worked with some of the featured speakers on regional and national workgroups, feel is a great opportunity for those interested in receiving an introduction on this issue, and encourage
you to participate.
