(WKBN)- Case Western Reserve University’s Case Comprehensive Cancer Center will explain its proposed Healthy Futures Research Study on Wednesday.
This study looks into the health impacts of the East Palestine Train Derailment.
Researchers will collect information about residents in East Palestine and surrounding communities in a survey, as well as by sampling DNA to measure changes.
According to the press release, researchers measure genotoxicity to see about possible increases in certain diseases in the future. This helps the community understand health concerns.
