Telephone Interviews

You may be invited to take part in follow-up interviews that will help us understand the ongoing physical and mental health effects of the spill. We have already completed one round of follow-up telephone interviews. Nearly 3,500 of you completed a study clinical exam. The next telephone interviews are set to begin in Spring 2017. If you are contacted, please participate. The information you share will also help to shape the ongoing response to this disaster, as well as the response to future oil spills.
