Sandra Steingraber Wins Heinz Award
Dr Sandra Steingraber is a renowned scientist and environmental health advocate with whom HEAL has worked with over the past years on many different issues.
She first highlighted her concerns about fracking last December in the context of our European Cancer and Environment week in the Parliament, and mentioned fracking as the next big environmental health threat. Her words, evidence and visionary foresight have inspired HEAL to mobilize around this issue over the past year.
We are very pleased to hear that she has been named recipient of the prestigious Heinz Award and that her response on how she intends to use her cash award is to fight fracking in New York.
