Research Priorities for Assessing Health Effects from the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: A Letter Report

A report is now available through the National Academic Press regarding the research priorities for assessing the impact the Gulf of Mexico oil spill will have on the health of clean-up workers, volunteers, residents and visitors in the gulf. 


Committee to Review the Federal Response to the Health Effects Associated with the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill; Institute of Medicine 


It is as yet uncertain how the Gulf of Mexico oil spill will affect the health of clean-up workers and volunteers, residents, and visitors in the Gulf. The IOM recommends that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services focus on researching psychological and behavioral health, exposure information to oil and dispersants, seafood safety, communication methods for health studies, and methods for conducting research in order to better understand and mitigate the effects on human health for this oil spill and for future disasters.
