Industrial and medical uses of radioactivity, relative risks of radioactivity, new findings of health effects from research in cell metabolism. Classroom demonstrations of natural radioactivity using consumer products and cloud chambers will be conducted. The basis for solid public communications plans and methods, essential during emergencies, will be provided. The attendee will learn the basics of risk communications.
How You'll Benefit from This Course
This course will inform the attendee of the most recent understandings of radioactivity. To the extent that it is a part of our natural environment, the attendeešs knowledge of the environment will advance remarkably. As such the attendee will be better informed as to how to teach others of these findings, and improve the scientific basis for planning for emergency preparedness and recovery activities. Similarly, public communications plans will be essential in avoidance of mass fear and panic during periods of weapons use and resultant high stress.
Program Agenda *All courses are taught from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm each day
