"It provided a thorough and insightful exploration of the significance of interprofessional collaboration in tackling PFAS contamination. The panelists exhibited exceptional communication skills, delivering responses that were not only informative but also accessible to a wide audience. In my view, the presentation effectively achieved its aim of motivating and mobilizing individuals to take action. It thoughtfully offered valuable resources for engaging in legislative advocacy, community involvement, and a forward-looking perspective on how our collective efforts can shape a brighter future."
