2017 PARTICIPANTS!

A total of 898 people from Yellowknife, Ndilo and Dettah participated in the arsenic study in the fall 2017. Participants will receive their results for urine in a personal letter in June 2018!

We will send the results of your toenail analysis in the Fall of 2018. Your saliva results will be grouped with all participants and the general results shared at community meetings sometime in late 2018 or early 2019.
