EDC Strategies Partnership

The EDC Strategies Partnership organizes monthly webinars exploring EDC exposure pathways, linkages to health outcomes, and protocols for identifying chemical substances with endocrine-disrupting capacities.

The Endocrine Disruption Exchange (TEDX), Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL), and Commonweal Biomonitoring Resource Center (CBRC) established a working group in 2014 focused on endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC). Later that year CHE joined forces and together these organizations initiated a series of CHE-hosted teleconference calls covering current EDC research. In 2017, Commonweal’s Program on Endocrine Disruption Strategies (PEDS) joined the partnership. PEDS became Healthy Environment and Endocrine Disruptor Strategies (HEEDS) in 2019.

Sadly, TEDX closed its doors at the end of 2019 and will no longer be an active member of the CHE EDC Strategies Partnership.
