PCB studies to be presented
Next Tuesday, researchers from the Anniston
Environmental Health Research Consortium will present findings to
the community from five different PCB related studies conducted in
the Anniston area. The meeting is to be held at Greater Thankful
Baptist Church, Family Life Center at 6:30 p.m. The $3.2 million
Health Study was funded in 2003 by the Agency for Toxic Substances &
Disease Registry. After collaboration with the community, five
separate studies were identified as priorities for the area. Dr.
Scott Bartell, Co-Principal Investigator said that they want to
discuss the findings with the community and respond to any questions
or concerns. He said the purpose is to ensure that participants of
the studies, as well as other community members, have an
understanding of these results. Bartlett says he believes they have
targeted the issues of greatest concern to the community-at-large,
and that they must generate this information to the citizens,
community leaders, and health care providers so that all have a
greater understanding of the effects of PCB exposure. The studies
conducted included, whether PCB Exposure Associated with Diabetes, A
study of neurocognitive and neurobehavioral function in children
following PCB exposure. Again the meeting will be Tuesday night at
6:30 in the Greater Thankful Baptist church family life center.
