Monitoring the health impacts of fracking and related industry
February 28, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST
Are you interested in tracking the long term fracking-related health effects you and your community are experiencing? Would you like to be a part of the research on fracking and health which may influence lawmakers and physicians? Would you like to feel less alone in your fracking-related health problems?
The Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project’s online Shale Gas & Oil Health Registry allows individuals and communities to complete detailed questions regarding health problems exacerbated by fracking. The registry is for anyone living within 5 miles of any fracking activity, including sandmines, truck traffic, and pipelines.
The Shale Gas & Oil Health Registry is a useful tool for those seeking to track the health of themselves and their families, as well as those interested in having an impact by being a part of research. Join us on Wednesday February 28th at 1:00pm EST to hear more about EHP’s health registry, including an interactive demo and a question and answer session.
