Scientists, doctors, attorneys, researchers, environmental advocates and policy experts will gather in Warren on Friday and Saturday at the Wean Foundation meeting room, 147 W. Market St., for a hydraulic- fracturing conference.

It is one of the first in Ohio to study and discuss facts, concerns and evolving science related to the industry, according to a press release.

Keynote speaker will be Deborah Rogers of Energy Policy Forum of Dallas, who will talk about financial aspects of the industry in an address titled “Was the decline in natural-gas prices orchestrated?”

Bernard D. Goldstein will talk about potential public-health impacts.

Among the organizers of the conference are FracTracker Alliance, which has an office in the Wean Foundation’s incubator office space; Buckeye Forest Council; and FreshWater Acountability Project Ohio.

The conference will present researchers who have studied human health effects of hydraulic fracturing. Other presenters will talk about the history and effects of hydraulic fracturing and policy implications.

The public is invited to attend.
