Medicine’s Darcy Freedman and Fred Schumacher share research findings related to toxic train derailment in East Palestine

Expert: More data should have been collected to gauge health impact of East Palestine derailment

WFMJDarcy Freedman, the Swetland Professor in Environmental Health Sciences at the School of Medicine, and Fred Schumacher, associate professor in the Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences, presented their findings from testing data after the toxic train derailment in East Palestine last February. “If you look at the publically available data we are not seeing signs that indicate long-term hazard risk, but we are identifying there were things that could have been measured or should have been measured that weren’t measured,” said Freedman.
