Symposium presentation:

Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project collects symptom data from communities living near shale gas development. Ms. Chabeau will be presenting the situation regarding these health impacts as we understand them through our own health data as well as through a few stories from the residents themselves. Then to offer some tools to help, she will present EHP's Environmental Health Medical Toolkit as a resource for healthcare providers caring for frontline shale gas communities.
