About the Program

  • Outreach to uranium miners, millers, downwinders and ore transporters.
  • Medical Screenings for early detection of Non-malignant and Malignant Diseases.
  • Referrals for Medical Treatment.
  • Education about radiogenic cancer and disease.
  • Assistance with medical documentation for the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) program.
