Shale Gas Development and Public Health: Translating Science into Policy

Join the discussion in Halt the Harm Network to connect with experts and explore further information on this topic.

Since 2012, the Environmental Health Project (EHP) has defended public health in the face of shale gas development. To kick off a year-long celebration of our tenth anniversary, we hosted a public health summit titled Shale Gas and Public Health: Translating Science into Policy.

This event featured four subject matter experts in various areas: child health and development, endocrine disrupting chemicals, environmental economics, and environmental justice. These guest speakers presented information from their own work, co-led breakout sessions with members of EHP’s policy team, and participated in a panel discussion with EHP’s executive director to highlight themes and insights on how to approach meaningful, effective, and just policy decisions related to shale gas development.
