Scope and Content Notes:
Medical records consist of laboratory and physician's reports, patient histories, signed doctor and patient statements, and correspondence concerning residents of Yukon, Pa., and surrounding areas, who believed they were suffering negative health consequences of exposure to pollutants. Reports deal with toxicology and tissue analysis, and the treatment of respiratory ailments, hepatitis, anemia, and cancers. Correspondence largely deals with patient and attorney requests for records, and patient and physician forms of consent, which qualified the reports for use as evidence in CRY's court proceedings. Copies of medical files were submitted to CRY attorney Robert Ging, Esq.
In order to protect the privacy of individuals involved, and in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), these records are restricted and closed to researchers until further notice.
