Dr. Steingraber Comes to Miami to Discuss New Science on Fracking
On January 20th, 2018, Dr. Sandra Steingraber, co-founder of the Concerned Health Professionals of New York, visited Miami-Dade College to educate the general public about the potential health threats related to fracking. New and unconventional drilling methods for oil and gas could have endless, catastrophic effects on South Florida. The Concerned Health Professionals of New York have issued multiple health compendiums on the over 500 peer-reviewed studies on the impacts of fracking. Dr. Steingraber's visit coincided with the completion of the 5th version of the Compendium of Scientific, Medical, and Media Findings Demonstrating Risks and Harms of Fracking. Caroline Lewis, CLEO’s Executive Director, had the opportunity to introduce Dr. Steingraber and her valuable work.
