In 2019, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s administration allocated $3 million to a pair of studies to explore the potential health effects of the shale gas industry, taking action after months of impassioned pleas by the families of childhood cancer patients who live in the most heavily drilled region of the state. Those studies have been underway for two years.
On October 5, a public meeting in Canonsburg, PA, will offer residents an opportunity to learn more about the studies implemented by the University of Pittsburgh and titled the “PA Health and Environment Studies.” Although the results of the studies will not be available for this meeting, the Pennsylvania Department of Health and members of Pitt Public Health will be there to explain the study process and to take questions from community members. Attendees will also hear from the Environmental Health Project regarding other health and environment studies that have taken place in the community, as well as to share other information that families can use to protect their health.
The studies cover the entirety of the Southwestern PA Region including Allegheny County, Armstrong County, Beaver County, Butler County, Fayette County, Greene County, Washington County, and Westmoreland County.
