In determining the hypertension control rate, CDC defines ‘‘hypertension control’’ as a blood pressure reading <140 mmHg systolic and <90 mmHg diastolic among patients ages 18–85 with a diagnosis of hypertension. • The hypertension control rate should be for the provider’s or health system’s entire adult hypertensive patient population ages 18–85, and not limited to a sample. The provider’s or health system’s hypertensive population ages 18–85 should include only patients in primary care or in cardiology care in the case of a cardiology clinic. Patients seen only in dental care or behavioral health care should not be included. Examples of ineligible data submissions include hypertension control rates that are limited to treatment cohorts from research studies or pilot studies, patients limited to a specific age range (such as 18–35 only), or patients enrolled in limited scale quality improvement projects. • Completion of a checklist of sustainable clinic systems or processes that support hypertension control. These may include provider or patient incentives, dashboards, staffing characteristics, electronic record keeping systems, reminder or alert systems, clinician reporting, service modifications, etc. The estimated burden for completing the application form is 30 minutes. Amount of the Prize Up to 35 of the highest scoring clinical practices or health systems will be recognized as Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Champions. No cash prize will be awarded. Champions will receive national recognition. Basis Upon Which Winner Will Be Selected The application will be scored based on two hypertension control rates: one for your most recent 12-month reporting period ending not earlier than December 31, 2017, and consistency with a previous rate for a 12-month period 1 year before the current rate. Phase 1 includes verification of the hypertension prevalence and blood pressure control rate data submitted and a background check. For applicants whose Phase 1 data is verified as accurate and who pass the background check without concerns, phase 2 consists of a medical chart review. The VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Feb 11, 2019 Jkt 247001 medical chart review will verify the diagnosis of hypertension during the reporting year as well as blood pressure being controlled to <140 mmHg systolic and <90 mmHg diastolic. A CDC-sponsored panel of three to five experts consisting of HHS/CDC staff will review the applications that pass phase 2 to select Champions. Final selection of Champions will take into account all the information from the application form, the background check, and data verification and validation. In the event of tied scores based on the hypertension control rate at any point in the selection process, geographic location may be taken into account to ensure a broad distribution of champions. Some Champions will participate in a post-challenge telephone interview. The interview will include questions about the strategies employed by the individual practice or organization to achieve high rates of hypertension control, including barriers and facilitators for those strategies. The interview will focus on systems and processes and should not require preparation time by the Champion. The estimated time for the interview is two hours, which includes time to review the interview protocol with the interviewer, respond to the interview questions, and review a summary about the Champion’s practices. The summary may be written as a success story and will be posted on the Million Hearts® website. Additional Information Information received from applicants will be stored in a password protected file on a secure server. The challenge website will not include confidential or proprietary information about individual applicants, as described further below. The database of information submitted by applicants will not be posted on the website. Information collected from applicants will include general details, such as the business name, address, and contact information of the applicant. This type of information is generally publicly available. The application will collect and store only aggregate clinical data through the application process; no individually identifiable patient data will be collected or stored. Confidential or propriety data, clearly marked as such, will be secured to the full extent allowable by law. Information for selected Champions, such as the provider, practice, or health system’s name, location, hypertension control rate, and clinic practices that support hypertension control will be shared through press releases, the PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3449 challenge website, and Million Hearts® and HHS/CDC resources.

Proposed Project Human Health Effects of Drinking Water Exposures to Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) at Pease International Tradeport, Portsmouth, NH (The Pease Study)— New—Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Feb 11, 2019 Jkt 247001 Background and Brief Description Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of environmentally and biologically persistent chemicals used in industrial applications such as aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), used to extinguish flammable liquid fires. Since the 1970s, military bases in the U.S. have used AFFF with PFAS constituents for firefighting training as well as to extinguish fires. At some military bases, AFFF use has resulted in the migration of PFAS chemicals through soils to ground water and/or surface water sources of drinking water for bases and/or surrounding communities. In 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) issued a lifetime health advisory level of 0.07 total micrograms of perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) combined per liter of drinking water (mg/L). In response to growing awareness of the extent of PFAS contamination across the U.S., Section 8006 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, authorized the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) to conduct a study on the human health effects of PFAS contamination in drinking water. In response, ATSDR is requesting a three-year Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) clearance for the Pease Study, which will serve as a proof-of-concept model for a national multi-site study of PFAS health effects. The existence of a large body of state and local environmental monitoring and population blood testing data makes the Pease community in Portsmouth, NH, particularly suitable as ATSDR’s initial PFAS research study site. From approximately 1970 until 1991, the Air Force used AFFF for firefighting and training at Pease Air Force Base. The base closed in 1991, and was converted to a large business and aviation industrial park in 1993, the Pease International Tradeport. In 2014, PFAS drinking water concentrations were detected (0.35 mg/L PFOA and 2.4 mg/L PFOS) at levels well above what was to become the USEPA lifetime health advisory level (0.07 mg/L PFOA/PFOS). In 2015–7, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (NH DHHS) offered a PFAS blood testing program to the community. The blood testing program showed that the Pease population had concentrations of some types of PFAS that were two to three times higher than national estimates. The Pease Study will be crosssectional in design, drawing from a convenience sample of people with and PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 without exposure to PFAScontaminated drinking water from Pease. The main goals of the study are to: (1) Evaluate the study procedures and methods to identify any issues that need to be addressed before embarking on a national multi-site study; and (2) examine associations between health outcomes and measured and historically reconstructed serum levels of PFAS. ATSDR will examine the association between PFAS compounds and lipids, renal function and kidney disease, thyroid hormones and disease, liver function and disease, glycemic parameters and diabetes, as well as immune response and function in both children and adults. In addition, ATSDR will investigate if PFAS is related to differences in sex hormones and sexual maturation, vaccine response, and neurobehavioral outcomes in children. In adults, additional outcomes of interest include cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, endometriosis, and autoimmune disease. Adults will be 18 years or older, and children will be 4–17 years of age at enrollment. In total, ATSDR seeks to enroll 1,625 participants (1,100 adults and 525 children and their parents). Annualized estimates are 542 participants (367 adults and 175 children). For the exposure group (n=1,350), ATSDR will enroll 1,000 adults and 350 children. Annualized estimates are 450 exposed participants (333 adults and 117 children). Eligible participants had to work at, live on, or attend childcare at the former Pease Air Force Base or the Pease International Tradeport, or live in a nearby home that was served by a PFAS-contaminated private well. Drinking water exposures must have occurred at some time between 2004 and May 2014, after which remediation of the public water supply occurred. For the referent group (n=275), ATSDR will enroll 100 adults and 175 children. Annualized estimates are 92 referent participants (34 adults and 58 children). Eligible participants, never exposed to PFAS-contaminated drinking water from Pease, will come from other areas of Portsmouth, NH. Birth mothers of referent children likewise must never have had PFAS drinking water exposure. ATSDR will recruit, screen for eligibility, and enroll in three waves. The exposure group will be recruited in Waves One and Two. ATSDR estimates that 89 percent of the exposure group will be enrolled in Wave One (n=1,200, or 400 per year), that is, will be past participants of the 2015–7 NH DHHS PFAS blood testing program. NH DHHS will assist ATSDR by sending out letters E:\FR\FM\12FEN1.SGM 12FEN1 3451 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 29 / Tuesday, February 12, 2019 / Notices of invitation to its former blood testing program participants. To achieve the desired sample size, the other 11 percent of the exposure group (n=150, or 50 per year) will be recruited in Wave Two. These will be people who were eligible for the PFAS blood testing program but did not take part. The referent group will be recruited in Wave Three (n=275, or 92 per year), which can occur concurrently with Wave One and Wave Two. Wave Two and Wave Three recruits will call to volunteer after ATSDR opens those waves to enrollment. To restrict this study to drinking water exposures, any adult occupationally exposed to PFAS will not be eligible for the study (i.e., ever firefighters or in chemical manufacture). Likewise, children whose birth mothers were occupationally exposed will not be eligible. This restriction applies to both the exposure and the referent group. ATSDR assumes that five percent of the people who volunteer will not meet eligibility requirements. ATSDR will screen the 1,578 people from the NH DHHS PFAS blood testing program in Wave One (n=526 per year). ATSDR will screen at least 198 exposed people in Wave Two (or 66 per year), and at least 362 unexposed people in Wave Three (or 121 per year). This will require an annual time burden of 134 hours for eligibility screening. At enrollment, ATSDR will obtain adult consent, parental permission, and child assent before data collection begins. Each child will enroll with a parent, who ideally will be the child’s birth mother, as ATSDR will ask details about the child’s exposure, pregnancy, and breastfeeding history. For each participant, ATSDR will take body measures, collect blood and urine samples for chemical and biomarker analysis, and administer a questionnaire on exposures and medical history. For purposes of burden estimation, ATSDR assumes that 20 percent of parents will also enroll as adults; therefore, 420 parents will take the child questionnaire long form (n=140 per year), while 105 parents will take the short form to reduce burden (n=35 per year). Parents and children will also complete assessments of the child’s attention and behaviors. After eligibility screening, the annual time burden for participation in the study is 58 hours for adults and 208 hours for children and their parents. ATSDR will ask for permission to compare adults’ and children’s medical histories with their medical records. ATSDR will also ask for permission to check children’s school records to compare their behavioral assessment results. The annual time burden for medical record abstraction is estimated to be 183 hours. The annual time burden for school record abstraction is estimated to be 60 hours. The total annualized time burden requested is 1,199 hours. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time.

Proposed Project

    Human Health Effects of Drinking Water Exposures to Per- and 
Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) at Pease International Tradeport, 
Portsmouth, NH (The Pease Study)--New--Agency for Toxic Substances and 
Disease Registry (ATSDR).

Background and Brief Description

    Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of 
environmentally and biologically persistent chemicals used in 
industrial applications such as aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), used 
to extinguish flammable liquid fires. Since the 1970s, military bases 
in the U.S. have used AFFF with PFAS constituents for firefighting 
training as well as to extinguish fires. At some military bases, AFFF 
use has resulted in the migration of PFAS chemicals through soils to 
ground water and/or surface water sources of drinking water for bases 
and/or surrounding communities. In 2016, the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency (USEPA) issued a lifetime health advisory level of 
0.07 total micrograms of perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) and perfluorooctane 
sulfonate (PFOS) combined per liter of drinking water ([mu]g/L). In 
response to growing awareness of the extent of PFAS contamination 
across the U.S., Section 8006 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2018, authorized the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry 
(ATSDR) to conduct a study on the human health effects of PFAS 
contamination in drinking water.
    In response, ATSDR is requesting a three-year Paperwork Reduction 
Act (PRA) clearance for the Pease Study, which will serve as a proof-
of-concept model for a national multi-site study of PFAS health 
effects. The existence of a large body of state and local environmental 
monitoring and population blood testing data makes the Pease community 
in Portsmouth, NH, particularly suitable as ATSDR's initial PFAS 
research study site. From approximately 1970 until 1991, the Air Force 
used AFFF for firefighting and training at Pease Air Force Base. The 
base closed in 1991, and was converted to a large business and aviation 
industrial park in 1993, the Pease International Tradeport. In 2014, 
PFAS drinking water concentrations were detected (0.35 [mu]g/L PFOA and 
2.4 [mu]g/L PFOS) at levels well above what was to become the USEPA 
lifetime health advisory level (0.07 [mu]g/L PFOA/PFOS). In 2015-7, the 
New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (NH DHHS) offered 
a PFAS blood testing program to the community. The blood testing 
program showed that the Pease population had concentrations of some 
types of PFAS that were two to three times higher than national 
estimates.
    The Pease Study will be cross-sectional in design, drawing from a 
convenience sample of people with and without exposure to PFAS-
contaminated drinking water from Pease. The main goals of the study are 
to: (1) Evaluate the study procedures and methods to identify any 
issues that need to be addressed before embarking on a national multi-
site study; and (2) examine associations between health outcomes and 
measured and historically reconstructed serum levels of PFAS. ATSDR 
will examine the association between PFAS compounds and lipids, renal 
function and kidney disease, thyroid hormones and disease, liver 
function and disease, glycemic parameters and diabetes, as well as 
immune response and function in both children and adults. In addition, 
ATSDR will investigate if PFAS is related to differences in sex 
hormones and sexual maturation, vaccine response, and neurobehavioral 
outcomes in children. In adults, additional outcomes of interest 
include cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, 
endometriosis, and autoimmune disease. Adults will be 18 years or 
older, and children will be 4-17 years of age at enrollment.
    In total, ATSDR seeks to enroll 1,625 participants (1,100 adults 
and 525 children and their parents). Annualized estimates are 542 
participants (367 adults and 175 children).
    For the exposure group (n=1,350), ATSDR will enroll 1,000 adults 
and 350 children. Annualized estimates are 450 exposed participants 
(333 adults and 117 children). Eligible participants had to work at, 
live on, or attend childcare at the former Pease Air Force Base or the 
Pease International Tradeport, or live in a nearby home that was served 
by a PFAS-contaminated private well. Drinking water exposures must have 
occurred at some time between 2004 and May 2014, after which 
remediation of the public water supply occurred.
    For the referent group (n=275), ATSDR will enroll 100 adults and 
175 children. Annualized estimates are 92 referent participants (34 
adults and 58 children). Eligible participants, never exposed to PFAS-
contaminated drinking water from Pease, will come from other areas of 
Portsmouth, NH. Birth mothers of referent children likewise must never 
have had PFAS drinking water exposure.
    ATSDR will recruit, screen for eligibility, and enroll in three 
waves. The exposure group will be recruited in Waves One and Two. ATSDR 
estimates that 89 percent of the exposure group will be enrolled in 
Wave One (n=1,200, or 400 per year), that is, will be past participants 
of the 2015-7 NH DHHS PFAS blood testing program. NH DHHS will assist 
ATSDR by sending out letters

[[Page 3451]]

of invitation to its former blood testing program participants. To 
achieve the desired sample size, the other 11 percent of the exposure 
group (n=150, or 50 per year) will be recruited in Wave Two. These will 
be people who were eligible for the PFAS blood testing program but did 
not take part. The referent group will be recruited in Wave Three 
(n=275, or 92 per year), which can occur concurrently with Wave One and 
Wave Two. Wave Two and Wave Three recruits will call to volunteer after 
ATSDR opens those waves to enrollment.
    To restrict this study to drinking water exposures, any adult 
occupationally exposed to PFAS will not be eligible for the study 
(i.e., ever firefighters or in chemical manufacture). Likewise, 
children whose birth mothers were occupationally exposed will not be 
eligible. This restriction applies to both the exposure and the 
referent group. ATSDR assumes that five percent of the people who 
volunteer will not meet eligibility requirements. ATSDR will screen the 
1,578 people from the NH DHHS PFAS blood testing program in Wave One 
(n=526 per year). ATSDR will screen at least 198 exposed people in Wave 
Two (or 66 per year), and at least 362 unexposed people in Wave Three 
(or 121 per year). This will require an annual time burden of 134 hours 
for eligibility screening.
    At enrollment, ATSDR will obtain adult consent, parental 
permission, and child assent before data collection begins. Each child 
will enroll with a parent, who ideally will be the child's birth 
mother, as ATSDR will ask details about the child's exposure, 
pregnancy, and breastfeeding history.
    For each participant, ATSDR will take body measures, collect blood 
and urine samples for chemical and biomarker analysis, and administer a 
questionnaire on exposures and medical history. For purposes of burden 
estimation, ATSDR assumes that 20 percent of parents will also enroll 
as adults; therefore, 420 parents will take the child questionnaire 
long form (n=140 per year), while 105 parents will take the short form 
to reduce burden (n=35 per year). Parents and children will also 
complete assessments of the child's attention and behaviors. After 
eligibility screening, the annual time burden for participation in the 
study is 58 hours for adults and 208 hours for children and their 
parents.
    ATSDR will ask for permission to compare adults' and children's 
medical histories with their medical records. ATSDR will also ask for 
permission to check children's school records to compare their 
behavioral assessment results. The annual time burden for medical 
record abstraction is estimated to be 183 hours. The annual time burden 
for school record abstraction is estimated to be 60 hours.
    The total annualized time burden requested is 1,199 hours. There is 
no cost to the respondents other than their time.
