Health Information for Oil Spills

A week ago I did a presentation on health information for an audience in Second Life interested in the Gulf Oil Spill. The next day, Michigan suffered a local oil spill, one of the largest (if not the largest) in Michigan history and the Midwest. From what I am seeing of the public health recommendations from our local state and county officials, much of the same health recommendations and resources hold true here as well as in the Gulf area. Here are the slides and links recommended in that earlier presentation.

Here are links to additional local information sources specifically on the Michigan Oil Spill (#MIoilspill).
