 Nurses are often asked by their patients and families about the benefits and risks of fish consumption. Conflicting media messages about health risks and benefits related to fish consumption, coupled with limited health professional training, has led to confusion by health professionals about advising patients and families about safe fish consumption.
Fish Facts for Health Professionals (“Fish-Facts”) is a collaborative effort between environmental, medical, and nursing experts from across the country to develop an educational series for busy health professionals about the risks and benefits of fish consumption.
This media series comprised of four, 3-5 minute media modules was designed for busy health professionals that are interested in learning more about the risks and benefits of fish consumption and methylmercury (MeHg) exposure.
A workbook complements the media series and provides more in-depth information and resources for those seeking additional information.
Here is a “taste” of what the educational media modules will offer:

The Fish-Facts Project was funded by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). For more information about this project, please contact Dr. Laura Anderko, Georgetown University at la266@georgetown.edu.
