More Funding Needed

Thursday, June 20, 2013
DANVILLE - Funding for a key study on possible health impacts of natural gas drilling has stalled. A spokeswoman for Danville-based Geisinger health system says the $1 million grant that was announced last year remains the only funding for a project that was expected to cost at least $25 million. Geisinger plans to look at health histories of hundreds of thousands of patients who live near Marcellus shale gas wells in Pennsylvania.
