MSU tasked with educating health-care providers on fish consumption
Date:10/15/2010

EAST LANSING, Mich. The Environmental Protection Agency has reached out to Michigan State University to inform the state's fish consumers about the harmful impact of environmental chemicals and help them access appropriate guidelines on eating fish.

Using a $1.5 million EPA grant, MSU researchers Ken Rosenman, Gary Ferenchick and David Solomon all from the College of Human Medicine and Kari Hortos from the College of Osteopathic Medicine will work with physicians and other health care providers in Michigan to provide them with the tools and information they need to identify at-risk patients and inform them of the benefits and potential dangers of eating fish.

While there have been advisories for years directed to people who fish and who are fish consumers, there is a concern these are not sufficient, said Rosenman, principal investigator on the grant and also director of MSU's Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

"We need to educate health care providers who can advise their patients on the benefits and hazards of fish consumption, particularly for those most at risk, including children and women of child-bearing age," he said. "Using trusted health care providers can have a huge impact: They can incorporate dietary questions into preventive medicine checkups and provide health fact sheets in their offices to spread this message."

As part of the project, the researchers will develop:

  • A comprehensive curriculum focusing on the benefits and dangers of eating fish and how to access websites with current advisories for fish consumption. The curriculum to be presented to medical students, residents, practicing physicians and nurse practitioners will include instructional objectives, a set of presentation slides and sample assessment questions.

  • A Web-based module based on the new curriculum that will include a digital lecture, interactive step-by-step directions on using fish advisories
