NIEHS East Palestine Research Grant Portfolio: Utilizing Research to Address the Post-exposure Health of the Region

On February 3, 2023, a train transporting chemicals including vinyl chloride derailed in the rural Appalachian village of East Palestine, with a subsequent burn of cars containing vinyl chloride on February 6. Six research projects focusing on human health and environmental monitoring were funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and in this webinar, each team will briefly discuss their study.

Regional Stakeholder Meetings 

Stakeholder meetings are held across the state; they are an essential piece of our advocacy, education, and relationship efforts.

This June our virtual meetings will bring people together to have a conversation about improved access to care. During a 1.5-hour interactive meeting, participants will rank the feasibility and impact of evidence-based solutions to address access to care. From these meetings, ORHA will identify top priorities for the state to implement to support the Ohio Rural Health Improvement Plan.

Please watch for registration information.
