Barb Rowe, who is a participant in the Michigan PBB Study, holds a poster promoting a symposium that will be livestreamed Feb. 20 at the Grand Haven library.

Barb Rowe said it’s time for people to take the PFAS threat seriously and become as informed as possible on the chemical compound’s potential effects.

An opportunity to do just that is coming up Thursday, Feb. 20, when the Loutit District Library livestreams a symposium titled “From PBB to PFAS: Research and action to address Michigan’s large-scale chemical contamination.” It is being hosted by the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and sponsored locally by the Grand Haven library and League of Women Voters.
