Since 2012, the Environmental Health Project (EHP) has been defending public health in the face of shale gas development. During that time, we have consistently fought to keep public health protections central to the conversation, growing our expertise, services, and geographic reach in the process. And while we have officially dropped “Southwest Pennsylvania” from our name, that’s exactly where our roots are–and will always be–no matter how far we extend our support.

We are hosting an exciting slate of quarterly events to celebrate our 10th anniversary: a public health summit focusing on how to translate existing knowledge into sound, health-protective policy; the launch of a policy-focused white paper demonstrating how public health was not protected during Pennsylvania’s shale gas boom (and how we can do better moving forward); and an anniversary dinner, during which we will showcase the impact we’ve had with our new community empowerment tools. Visit the links below to learn more.

We look forward to celebrating with you throughout 2022 as we highlight the steps and people who helped EHP become the go-to organization for resources on the health impacts of shale gas development. Whether you partner with us in community advocacy, health and wellness education, or public health policy, we are grateful that you are part of the amazing network of allies who will be at the table with us over the next 10 years.
