Geisinger gets $1 million grant for Marcellus health research

John Beauge | Special to PennLive

DANVILLE — Geisinger Health System has received a $1 million grant from a Sunbury foundation to help it underwrite its study into the potential health impact of Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling.

“Geisinger’s research into the health impacts of natural gas drilling fits perfectly with our mission and we are proud to support this important initiative,” said Michael Apfelbaum, co-trustee of the Degenstein Foundation.

Geisinger is using its electronic health record, along with those of Guthrie Health in Sayre and Susquehanna Health in Williamsport, to investigate the potential health effects of gas drilling. Read more...

Its just to bad the doctors arent allowed legally to tell you what chemicals you have been exposed to even though they know. Because its "proprietary ingredients". And you might figure out the drilling solution and all...What a load of shit

Why didn't they do the study BEFORE they allowed all this dumping on the ground and in the rivers and in wells? Money talks! We, the people, don't count. We're expendable.

They need to put funding into psychiatric treatment for those elected officials who continue to spread Penn State, PADEP and EPA lies,in the name of energy independence, jobs and economic benefits.

As with other areas, the whole region will be impacted by the work coming to the area causing a steady incline for most businesses.
I'm sure if there was a posting about local business owners ramping things up to accomodate the large amounts of business they expect, there would not be any negetave feedback. Geisinger will need to step it up as well, there will be more traffic accidents, job related injuries, etc.

11:06:00 Sorry, but there has been very minimal increase in business in our area. Most people working the gas are from out of state and spend their money there.
