Lots of IOM Presentations on the Oil Spill and Human Health Now Available
Normally this is the kind of thing I’d just share over Twitter, but it was all failwhale when I tried. The Institute of Medicine just wrapped up a meeting, Assessing the Human Health Effects of the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: An Institute of Medicine Workshop. If you go to the meeting page and look to your right, where it says “Other Meeting Resources,” there is a Presentations section. There are a whole bunch of presentations freely available there, on topics including human health effects generally, pregnancy, mental health, child health, occupational hazards for cleanup workers and volunteers, monitoring for effects and public health surveillance, and other concerns.
