Health Survey for Wheeler and Nehalem Communities

Spray on Black Background

If you don't already know, the Weyerhaeuser and Stimson Lumber companies have recently done some pesticide spraying near the towns of Nehalem and Wheeler, which raises some questions about the health of people exposed to those chemicals.

If you are a resident of those towns and would like to help answer these questions, please consider participating in a study by Pacific University Professor Deke Gundersen and his student Bryn Clodfelter

This study consists of a five-minute, 20-question online survey that will be sent to you once a month for four months. In order to be a anonymous as possible the only identifying information we will be collecting is your email address (so we can send out the survey).

If you are interested in helping keep track of your community's health, please click the link below to take a quick questionnaire to determine if you meet the eligibility requirements for participating in this study.

We are trying to get 30 to 40 people to sign up in the next week. Please send this to 5 people you know that live in the Nehalem/Wheeler area.

If you have questions feel free to contact the investigators:
