Workers often encounter a host of chemicals while exploring mining, hydraulic fracturing and other occupational sites across the country. In the historically mining-rich state of West Virginia, Gardner-Webb alumna Carrie Long is studying the impacts of some of those substances on the human immune system, in hopes of discovering information that will lead to health improvements for workers in a variety of professional fields. Long, a Ph.D. candidate at West Virginia University (Morgantown, W.Va.), is performing research in labs connected to both WVU and the neighboring Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health facility.
