HealthFirstPA Oct. 20 Webinar: Methane Pollution - What Health Experts Say About Climate Change And Public Health

HealthFirstPA will host an October 20 webinar on Methane Pollution - What Health Experts Say About Climate Change and Public Health from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

As the Department of Environment Protection and leaders in Harrisburg work on rules to reduce methane pollution and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) it is more important than ever to have a full understanding of the public health impacts of what is actually being released into the environment and the health consequences for all, especially our most vulnerable citizens: the elderly, children and pregnant woman.

The program will include a panel discussion by--

-- Dr. Ned Ketyer, M.D., F.A.A.P AHN - Pediatrics, Consultant, SWPA Environmental Health Project

-- Dr. Pouné Saberi, M.D., MPH - President, Physicians for Social Responsibility PA

-- Dr. Philip J. Landrigan, M.D., MSc -  Director of Global Public Health Program & Global Observatory on Pollution & Health at Boston College

HealthFirstPA is a coalition of health care professionals, public health advocates, parents, and faith leaders who defend children and other vulnerable populations from the health risks posed by harmful pollution from natural gas development.
