PFAS Information for Providers

July 20, 2018

Dear Health Care Provider:

This letter is to provide you with more information about perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), formally called perfluorochemicals (PFCs). PFAS are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been used for decades to manufacture household and commercial products that resist heat, oil, stains, grease, and water. As you may already be aware, a number of New Hampshire communities, such as the Seacoast, Merrimack, Litchfield, and other southern NH communities, have identified PFAS contamination in drinking water. This has raised concerns about possible health impacts and questions about how to monitor an exposed individual’s health.
