In the spring of 2010, the Health Department was contacted about the rates of cancer in Frederick County. Specific questions have been raised regarding the area surrounding Ft. Detrick.
As a result of these community concerns, the Health Department is currently conducting a cancer cluster investigation in collaboration with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH).
The next public meeting will be on January 3, 2011 from 6:30-8:30 pm in the first floor hearing room of Winchester Hall, 12 East Church Street, Frederick, MD
All meetings are broadcast live on Frederick County Government TV (channel 19) and are webcast on www.frederickcountymd.gov/video. For those unable to attend, meetings are archived for viewing on the webcasting page.
