About Concerned Health Professionals of New York

Concerned Health Professionals of New York (CHPNY) is an initiative by health professionals, scientists, and medical organizations for raising science-based concerns about the impacts of fracking on public health and safety. CHPNY provides educational resources and works to ensure that careful consideration of science and health impacts are at the forefront of the fracking debate. In 2021, CHPNY becomes a special project of the Science and Environmental Health Network, launching a partnership that will enable both groups to expand their core research and outreach activities and comprehensively serve frontline communities experiencing harm from fracking operations, pipeline projects, and other fossil fuel infrastructure.
