The Aliso Canyon Disaster Health Research Study team released for public review a set of draft Goals and Priorities prepared by the Health Study’s Scientific Oversight Committee (SOC). Developed with input received from the affected community through a variety of engagement efforts, these Goals and Priorities identify key areas the Health Study should address.
Over the past two years, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has engaged extensively with the impacted communities and has collected a wealth of input including: what residents would like to see studied, what their health concerns were and may continue to be, and what the lingering symptoms following the blowout are. The SOC is using this input to shape and inform the Health Study development process, including deciding the specific Health Study goals, which are available here
in draft form for public review and comment.
The 30-day public comment period has been extended to 5PM on April 30, (see notice here). We invite the public, especially community members living and working in the Northwestern neighborhoods of the San Fernando Valley, to review and provide public comment on the goals and priorities detailed. There are two ways you can submit input:
The SOC will not be able to respond to each comment received, but feedback will be catalogued and shared with the SOC so they can review and finalize the Goals & Priorities.
