Natural Gas Development, Public Health and the Most Vulnerable Populations

Monday | April 21, 2014 | 11:00 am

Webinar | CA

The rapid rise in unconventional natural gas extraction and development has increased the opportunity for contamination of air and water near drilling-dense regions across the country. The potential health implications have not been thoroughly studied. However, many of the chemicals associated with extraction (fracking) and development have been shown in studies to be associated with acute and chronic health impacts in children and women, (i.e. respiratory, neurological, reproductive, and developmental impacts).

This webinar series focuses on our current understanding of possible impacts and how we should advance our knowledge through research, medicine, and public health practice.

Each of these presentations are one in a 6 week series beginning Monday, April 21. These calls will be limited to 45-60 minutes, each featuring presentations by experts in the field of environmental heath, medicine, and public health. They will each include 10-15 minutes for Q & A.

Featured Speaker: Carol Kwiatkowski, PhD, The Endocrine Disruption Exchange (TEDX).

Who should participate? Mothers and families; Professionals in the health and science community.

Space is limited, register online.
