New Healthcare Resources For Communities Impacted by Gas Drilling
Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project (EHP)
Two New Online Natural Gas Drilling Health Care Resources!
Our colleagues at Physicians, Scientists, and Engineers for Healthy Energy (PSE) have co-sponsored, with the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY), a series of online medical educational modules. The presentations, by medical experts, address a wide range of patient concerns and symptoms related to gas extraction activities. Included in the CME credited modules are a lecture by EHP’s David Brown, ScD and an interview with Denise DeJohn, RN, MSN, CRNP.
EHP’s own CME Medical Training Workshop entitled “Health Concerns in the Era of Gas Drilling: A Basic Toolkit for Healthcare Providers” is also available online. In this workshop, clinicians receive tools and resources to address adverse health effects related to gas extraction activities: www.environmentalhealthproject.org.
