Health Concerns in the Era of Gas Drilling: A Basic Toolkit for Healthcare Providers
Info: Raina Rippel, Project Director
SWPA Environmental Health Project
The program will discuss the potential adverse health effects resulting from unconventional gas extraction. Clinicians will be provided with tools and resources to assist in addressing patient concerns and symptoms related to gas extraction activities.
At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Recognize the exposures their patients may be experiencing and be able to evaluate both the symptoms and the potential exposures
• Assist their patients to reduce their potential exposures
This continuing education activity is meant to attract primary care physicians, pediatricians, residents, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other health care professionals interested in learning about the health impacts of gas drilling activities.
