CLEVELAND — “‘Public Health Impacts of Natural Gas Development,’ a talk by Karen B. Mulloy, DO, MSCH, Director of the Denver Health Center for Occupational Safety and Health, Associate Professor, Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Colorado School of Public Health.
The presentation will take a broad look at public health issues and worker health and safety issues related to all parts of gas exploration and development. These include water and air pollution impacts of the whole industrial process (including what is known and not known about long-term health effects and what research needs remain), worker health and safety issues, and public health impacts of rapidly growing industrial processes in rural areas, such as the increase in sexually transmitted diseases.
As an occupational/environmental physician in Denver for the past five years, Dr. Mulloy has intimate knowledge of the breadth and extent of health problems that arise in both workers and the public related to community changes caused by the gas and oil drilling industry. She will present the experience in Colorado and neighboring states.”
