...Joe Manchin to discuss toxicological testing relating to the July 9 chemical spill," Dr. Gupta said. "Dr. Frieden committed to providing further surveillance measures based on findings of toxicological testing. The National Institute of Health committed to these tests during this morning's meeting. In addition, the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences also committed to continuing studies. After all these months, it's positive we are moving forward, particularly with developing independent studies which will give our citizens more confidence in their outcomes. I am glad Karen Bowling, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Resources, and Dr. Letitia Tierney, state health officer, were present, so we can have a unified front moving forward to solve this problem. I am also grateful to Sen. Manchin and Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin for being persistent in seeking broad-ranging national solutions to the chemical spill problem."
