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.
