Geisinger Health Systems has announced that it was awarded a $1 million grant by the Degenstein Foundation to study health impacts of Marcellus shale drilling. The grant funds are expected to be primarily used to create data-gathering infrastructure, with the balance going to develop studies of the data gathered. Geisinger expects to collaborate on its efforts with Guthrie Health of Sayre and Susquehanna Health. Preliminary results could be available next year, with long-term results expected to follow in the coming years. AP has more.
