“Preventing Adverse Health Effects from Nanotechnology”
August 20, 2013
1 p.m. – 2 p.m., EDT
*Please visit the Grand Rounds homepage to view this session on the scheduled date and time
Nanotechnology is the science of developing materials at the atomic, molecular or micro-molecular level. From smartphones to skincare, there are currently over 1,000 commercial products containing nanomaterials, with applications as far ranging as the fields of medicine, engineering, electronics, and energy production.
This session of Public Health Grand Rounds focused on the current state of knowledge in nanotechnology and discussed concerns about the harmful impact that exposure to some nanomaterials may have on humans and the environment.
Future Grand Rounds topics include Aging Safely and Independently and Advanced Molecular Detection.

- List key measures of burden of disease involving morbidity, mortality, and/or cost.
- Describe evidence-based preventive interventions and the status of their implementations.
- Identify one key prevention science research gap.
- Name one key indicator by which progress and meeting prevention goals is measured.
CE certificates can be printed from your computer immediately upon completion of your online evaluation. A cumulative transcript of all CDC/ATSDR CE’s obtained through the TCE Online System will be maintained for each user.
