Dear Ms. Weinstein:

What is the status of the epidemiolgical study being done for the 14150 and 14217 ZIP code areas? It has been quite a while since we heard from you.

This would be in the Town of Tonawanda.

Sincerely,

Don Finch

Dear Mr. Finch,

Thank you for your inquiry. The follow-up study of cancer incidence in the Town of Tonawanda, which will look at an area smaller than the two ZIP Codes already studied, is in progress. Right now, we are in the second phase of geocoding records in the Cancer Registry. This involves assigning census tracts (first phase) and in some areas block groups (subdivisions of census tracts, the second phase) to addresses so that we can identify people living in a smaller area around the Linde site who were diagnosed with cancer. Although much of this can be done by computer, there are always addresses that have to be done manually, and this can be a lengthy process.

We will be sure to keep you informed as the study nears completion and as we prepare for the release of the findings.

Sincerely,

Aura Weinstein

Dear Ms. Weinstein:

Thank you very much for your prompt answer.

Many times, we, here in the field, feel that we've been forgotten or put on the back burner when we don't receive periodic updates.

We shall be looking forward to future updates.

Sincerely,

Don Finch
