Thursday webinar will use interactive tool that suggests health impacts of oil and gas drilling

A new web-based interactive platform aims to help residents, public-health scientists, medical professionals and community organizations create and share data about the local impacts of oil and gas drilling. The Environmental Health Channel was developed by the Create Lab at Carnegie Mellon University in partnership with the Environmental Health Project, with support from the Pittsburgh Foundation. The data is self-reported and includes physical and psychosocial health symptoms, measurements of particulate pollution in the air, and personal narratives from residents.

The Environmental Health Project will host a free webinar at 12:30 p.m. EST Thursday, Nov. 30, to demonstrate how to use the EHC. Click here to register or for more information.
