This announcement solicits applications for the Black Lung Clinics Program (BLCP).  BLCP’s primary goal is to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with occupationally-related coal mine dust lung disease (CMDLD)[1] through the provision of medical, outreach, educational, and benefits counseling services. [1] CMDLD is used here to refer to a spectrum of lung diseases caused by inhaling coal mine dust that includes coal workers’ pneumoconiosis, mixed dust pneumoconiosis, silicosis, dust-related diffuse fibrosis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  See, e.g., Petsonk et al (2013), “Coal Mine Dust Lung Disease: New Lessons from an Old Exposure,” American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine 187(11), pp. 1178-1184.
