Abstract: As part of its ongoing commitment to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide periodic independent reviews of the federal response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill as it relates to the surveillance and monitoring of acute and long-term physical and behavioral health effects, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) convened the Committee to Review the Federal Response to the Health Effects Associated with the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill. As part of its work, the committee planned a workshop to bring together experts to review and make comments on the Gulf Long-Term Follow-Up Study for Oil Spill Clean-Up Workers and Volunteers (GuLF) study protocol, which was published on the IOM website just before the conference. This document highlights the presentations and discussions that occurred during the workshop, which was held on September 22, 2010, in Tampa, Florida.
