Dr. Sandra Steingraber, co-founder of the Concerned Health Professionals of New York, will visit 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 coincides with the completion of the 5th version of the Compendium of Scientific, Medical, and Media Findings Demonstrating Risks and Harms of Fracking.
Biologist, author, and cancer survivor, Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D. writes about climate change, ecology, and the links between human health and the environment.
Steingraber’s highly acclaimed book, Living Downstream: An Ecologist’s Personal Investigation of Cancer and the Environment, was the first to bring together data on toxic releases with data from U.S. cancer registries and was adapted for the screen in 2010. As both book and documentary film, Living Downstream has won praise from international media.
