I hope this finds you well. Thank you for expressing interest in participating in continued discussion on the health effects of wind farms.
One of the action points from the roundtable we had on 31 March (meeting note attached) was for me to make contact with you individually and find a time to discuss potential research questions and methodologies that could be employed to improve our understanding broader impacts of wind farms in Victoria.
The NHMRC has tentatively planned a workshop on this topic in early June (6/7th). If there is momentum to pursue further research on the topic, Victoria could have options (even if for feasibility studies) to put on the table.
I believe you are still overseas but cannot remember when you expected to be back in Australia. Either way, I suspect it will be difficult for us to meet (by phone or in person) before NHMRC workshop.
In early March, you did mention some research options during our phone conversation. I made rough notes from this conversation (attached) and pending your approval, I could use this as a starting point of some of your suggestions re: direction for research.
Do let me know what works best for you. Thanks again,
Kind regards, Stephanie
