Join ANS on Thursday, January 21, at noon (ET) for a Q&A with an expert panel as they discuss how to communicate about the risk of low-dose radiation. “Talking About Low-dose Radiation Risk” is a free members-only event that serves as a follow-up to the “Risky Business” President’s Session that took place during the ANS Virtual Winter Meeting last November. The session will take a deeper dive into the many questions generated from the thought-provoking discussion.

Register now to attend the webinar.

Topics addressed:

  • How do we get “reasonable” put back into the implementation of ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable)? What government/industry players must come together to make this happen?
  • What can scientists/engineers do to help dispel myths about radiation and nuclear and explain their benefits?
  • What can we learn from how other industries manage risk?

The panelists: ANS president Mary Lou Dunzik-Gougar will moderate the event and will be joined by panelists Amir A. Bahadori, of Kansas State University, Donald A. Cool, of the Electric Power Research Institute, Shaheen Dewji, of Texas A&M University, and Paul Locke, of the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.
