About the CARE Study
The California Regional Exposure (CARE) Study measures and compares levels of chemicals in people across the state. Information from the CARE Study can support policy makers and communities in taking action to protect our environment and health.
The study will measure levels of selected metals and perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (also known as PFASs). The CARE Study was launched in 2018 in Los Angeles County, and we visited Riverside, San Bernardino, Imperial, Mono, and Inyo counties in 2019.
The CARE Study is currently on hold due to COVID-19. If you would like to be contacted when the CARE Study resumes, please email us at CAREStudy@cdph.ca.gov.
