Abstract The Ohio River Basin Energy Study is a multi-disciplinary project of considerable magnitude, supported by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. It is concerned with present and future energy-environmental relationships in the Ohio River Basin; a tremendous resource which, as Senator Bayh described it in his address, is shared by the people of six states: Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. A major concern of ORBES is the health component of energy resource extraction, transportation, conversion (i.e. burning of coal and reactor operation) and transmission. In order to establish a sound 'state of knowledge' base it was decided to organize a three-day symposium devoted exclusively to the energy-health relationship. The six sessions were devoted to: (1) occupational problems in coal and uranium mining; (2) methodological problems in detecting health effects; (3) health aspects of fossil-fueled power plants; (4) health aspects of transportation and transmission; (5) health problems in nuclear power generation; and (6) future areas of concern.
