Endicott Meeting To Highlight IBM Health Study

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Federal health experts will present results of an IBM worker health study at an Endicott meeting.

Thursday evening’s session will be at the First United Methodist Church at 53 McKinley Avenue. The meeting is scheduled to start at 6:30.

Representatives of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health will discuss the research that examined the health of 34,494 people who had worked at the massive IBM Endicott manufacturing complex. Those involved in the study were employed at the site between 1969 and 2001.

Researchers evaluated overall causes of death among former workers.

The meeting is expected to start with an hour-long presentation by NIOSH officials. Those in attendance then will be able to comment or ask questions.

IBM has indicated it intends to have a representative at the session.

Sharon Silver, the lead author on the IBM Endicott study, will discuss the findings on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program Thursday morning at 9:15.
