Hydrofracturing and Natural Gas Development: Addressing Patient Health Concerns

Washington County Medical Society

Washington County Medical Society is providing an educational forum for physicians to learn and discuss the natural gas development which is so prevalent in our area. It is more apparent than ever that physicians need to be knowledgeable about the potential impact on our patients and prepared to address their concerns. If you practice medicine in Pennsylvania then you need to be a part of this important conversation.

*Designed to meet patient safety requirements!
