Dr. Helfand will discuss issues related to worker safety and the public health impacts of radiation to our water and food, particularly among vulnerable populations.

Ms. Foushee will discuss the history of nuclear racism in the US and the impact of routine background radiation emissions, using the Monticello nuclear plant in Minnesota as a case study.  Similar GE Mark I reactors are sited across the United States.
