We all take medicines, but did you know that sometimes the medicine doesn't stay in our bodies and ends up in our water supply? To learn more about cleaning up our water, ACS talked with Dr. Anne Morrissey of Dublin City University.
This year's Chemists Celebrate Earth Day theme is "The Wonders of Water." For more information, visit www.acs.org/earthday. http://ht.ly/w05WM

The world’s largest scientific society and a leading source of authoritative scientific information.
Introduction

With more than 161,000 members, the American Chemical Society (ACS) is the world’s largest scientific society and one of the world’s leading sources of authoritative scientific information. A nonprofit organization, chartered by Congress, ACS is at the forefront of the evolving worldwide chemical enterprise and the premier professional home for chemists, chemical engineers and related professions around the globe.

Our Mission and Vision

We are dynamic and visionary, committed to “Improving people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry.”

This vision ─ developed and adopted by the ACS Board of Directors after broad consultation with the membership ─ fully complements the ACS Mission statement, which is “to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people.” Together, these two statements represent our ultimate reason for being and provide a strategic framework for our efforts.
