About Us

EHP is a public health non-profit organization that provides wide-ranging support to communities impacted by shale gas and oil development. That support includes: health impact assessments, environmental and health monitoring, data and research interpretation, public health guidance, and the Shale Health Effects Registry.  EHP’s team includes a varied and skilled group of health care providers, scientists, community educators, analysts and communications experts. The organization opened in 2012 and today is at an exciting juncture as we have expanded our focus well beyond southwest PA. We seek to support communities more broadly in understanding the exposures and risks generated by shale gas and oil development, and also to engage in policy dialogues at the local, state and national levels regarding the public health implications of shale oil and gas activities. We have become national leaders in the comprehensive understanding of, and approach to, the public health consequences of shale development.
