I just came across this…

GuLF STUDY is investigating health issues associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster. It is studying the health effects (both short and long term) of the disaster on oil spill cleanup workers and volunteers including those that helped with oil spill cleanup, took training, signed up to work, or were sent to the Gulf to help in the disaster.

The study began in February, is expected to last 10 years, and has already reached out to many of the 100,000 or more people involved in the cleanup work … with a goal to ultimately enroll at least 55,000 people in the study.

This is an important study for fishermen, seafood industry workers, and others who may have helped clean up the oil spill. GuLF STUDY is currently enrolling participants in Louisiana. They are looking for feedback on how to best connect with workers and volunteers in our area and to encourage participation in the study. By participating in the study, response workers and volunteers will have a chance to share their experiences during and after the oil spill cleanup.
