Taconite study moves to Silver Bay
The ongoing University of Minnesota health study of current and former taconite industry workers has moved from Virginia to Silver Bay to attract more taconite workers from the eastern Iron Range.
The study was based out of Virginia Regional Medical Center for the past year and has tested nearly 1,500 industry workers, former employees and their spouses in an effort to find out why more steelworkers die from a rare lung disease compared to the general public.
