Technical Forum on Radiation - Joint Event with SLU College of Public Health and Social Justice

On April 26, Saint Louis University’s College for Public Health and Social Justice will host a technical forum to explain the science behind recent reports of radioactive substances at Jana Elementary school in Hazelwood, Mo.

Lee Sobotka, Ph.D., professor of chemistry and physics at Washington University in St. Louis and Roger D. Lewis, Ph.D., professor emeritus of environmental and occupational health at Saint Louis University, will moderate the forum. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will provide an overview of their investigation. Data from other investigations of this site will also be presented.

The event is sponsored by the St. Louis American Industrial Hygiene Association, the St. Louis Health Physics Society and the Center for Environmental Education and Training at Saint Louis University's College for Public Health and Social Justice.

Though the forum is designed for technicians who work in environmental remediation efforts, the event is open to the public, and anyone who is interested in exploring the science behind the recent investigations is welcome to attend.
Registration is required and can be completed
