Program 1

Continuing Medical Education

PSE
was granted CME accreditation in the form of a joint sponsorship with the
Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY) for the provision of a series
of CME activities on the health effects of shale gas development. We were
approved for 12 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM  credits
and will continue to release learning modules and lectures throughout 2013. The
CME lectures will exist as online enduring materials for a three year period
and will be available to the general public in addition to the healthcare
community. They will cover a number of topics related to shale gas extraction,
including a general introduction to the technology, vulnerable populations, the
use of animals as sentinels for human health, toxicology of chemical agents,
clinical evaluation, Health Impact Assessments (HIAs), and endocrine disrupting
chemicals (EDCs).

Program 2

Annual Health Conference

PSE hosted a conference entitled “Epidemiologic and Public
Health Considerations of Shale Gas Production: The Missing Link” that brought
together over one hundred experts from academic institutions and government
agencies from around the country to discuss epidemiologic and public health
issues arising from shale gas development. This conference was intended to
stimulate the much needed research in this nascent form of energy extraction
while examining the complex methodological issues that make this a challenging
area of research. In 2013, PSE will co-host a joint conference with the European Centre for Environment and Human Health.

Program 3

Research

White Papers & Peer-Review: PSE continues to generate original research and analyses on environmental and human health issues associated with unconventional energy production. In 2013, this work will expand to include the scientific bases of a sound transition to renewable energy portfolios and greater energy efficiency across all sectors.
 
Research Consortium: PSE developed
a public health focused research consortium to collect and assess scientific
data on the short and long term health effects of unconventional shale gas
extraction as a follow up to the 2012 Health Conference. This online forum/ repository is
open to vetted public health researchers and medical professionals, offering a
secure environment to discuss clinical tools, research, and other related
projects and issues.

Principal Officer

Dr. Seth Berrin Shonkoff PhD, MPH

BIO

An environmental and public health scientist by training, Seth has more than 12 years of experience in water, air, climate, ecological, and population health research.  He obtained his BA (2003) in the Department of Environmental Studies at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY.  Seth then went on to complete his MPH (2008) in epidemiology at the School of Public Health and his PhD (2012) in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management from the University of California, Berkeley.  Seth has worked and published extensively on topics related to air and water quality and the environmental and public health dimensions of energy and climate change from scientific and policy perspectives.  He has published on the interaction between the climate and human health dimensions of shorter-lived climate forcing emissions (i.e., ozone, black carbon, sulphate particles, etc.) and on the development of more effective anthropogenic climate mitigation policies that increase health and socioeconomic equity co-benefits. Most recently, his work has focused on the human health dimensions of unconventional energy production, including shale gas and oil production in the United States and abroad.
