CHE Partners on why they value our work

The Human Health Effects of the Gulf Coast Oil Spill: A Summary of the IOM Workshop

Jul 29, 2010


The Gulf oil spill is now being called the largest single environmental disaster in our nation’s history. The impact on the gulf ecosystem is only beginning to be assessed. And what of potential impacts on human health? The Institute of Medicine convened a meeting in late June, 2010 on that topic, and we will heard from some of the leading participants in that meeting on Thursday, July 29 about known and suspected health implications of the spread of crude oil and of efforts to contain and clean it.

Featured speakers included:

Linda Rosenstock, MD, MPH, Dean, UCLA School of Public Health

Brenda Eskenazi, PhD, Jennifer and Brian Maxwell Professor of Maternal and Child Health and Epidemiology; Director, Center for Children's Environmental Health Research, UC Berkeley School of Public Health


The call was moderated by Steve Heilig

Special note: CHE Partners interested in this call may also want to join the upcoming CHE Cafe call with Wilma Subra and Michael Lerner, On the Ground in the Gulf Coast. This call will take place on August 12th at 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST.
