UCLA Webinar on Fracking Health Concerns

There are health concerns around us and UCLA is offering a free webinar to answer questions. Over 250 communities in the U.S. have passed resolutions to stop hydraulic fracturing or “fracking,” a process used to extract natural gas by water-intensive drilling technology. Hydraulic fracturing introduces industrial activity into communities without critical information about environmental public health impacts.

Dr. Richard Jackson chaired the National Academy Sciences report on Health Impact Assessment in 2011 and has been requested by New York State’s Health Commissioner to help investigate the health risks associated with hydraulic fracturing. In this webinar, he will discuss what he calls a “perfect storm” of environment, health, energy, economic and political forces and will suggest approaches to better protect human health.

The webinar is conducted using Blackboard Collaborate™, accessible on PC, Mac, and now even iPad and iPhone. Your computer needs speakers or a headset to hear the audio portion of the webinar. Questions can be submitted via text during the webinar.
