Program Overview

The Radiation Exposure Screening and Education Program (RESEP) is authorized by Section 417C of the Public Health Service Act, Part C of Title IV, Public Law 106-245 (42 USC 285(a)-9).  The purpose of RESEP is to assist individuals who live (or lived) in areas where U.S. nuclear weapons testing occurred and are who are diagnosed with cancer and other radiogenic diseases caused by exposure to nuclear fallout or nuclear materials such as uranium. RESEP funds support eligible health care organizations in implementing cancer screening programs; developing education programs; disseminating information on radiogenic diseases and the importance of early detection; screening eligible individuals for cancer and other radiogenic diseases; providing appropriate referrals for medical treatment; and facilitating documentation of Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) claims.
