Oak Ridge Associated Universities, in conjunction with Vanderbilt University Medical Center toxicology experts, will host an open house on Tuesday, Aug. 17, to present the results of the medical screenings offered to Roane County residents who have health concerns related to the Kingston Fossil Plant fly ash spill of December, 2008.
The open house is scheduled from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at Roane State Community College.
The open house will include briefings by Donna Cragle, Ph.D. vice president for Occupational Exposure and Worker Health at ORAU, and John Benitez, M.D. medical toxicologist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
To ensure the transparency of our work on this project, we are providing the results to everyone at the same time via this project web page.
Please check back on this site at noon on Tuesday, August 17, for the report and other material, such as an executive summary and an at-a-glance brochure, to help explain the results. The presentations from the open house will be posted at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 17.
ORAU, in partnership with Vanderbilt University Medical Center, completed the initial round of medical screenings in April 2010.
More than 200 individuals were screened. The results report contains no personally identifiable information and consists of statistical data showing results of the screening population as a whole.
