Cindy Folkers (Beyond Nuclear) and Mary Olson (Gender and Radiation Impact Project) are again offering their course on radiation basics with guest presenter, Ian Fairlie.

Noon ET / 11 am CT / 10 am MT / 9 am PT

Topics Covered: What is radiation? Cancer as outcome; Sources of exposure; Risks; Do we need to tighten safety limits?

This course is a reprise of a course offered in 2022. All welcome, including anyone who wants to repeat!

Registration (required) & Details

Dr. Ian Fairlie and Cindy Folkers offer five weeks of presentations (watch on your own before class) – PLUS zoom discussion / Q+A instruction session—90 min each week. Additional course materials will include original papers by both Leaders; a list of citations; and recommended additional reading.

The discussion sessions, led by Mary Olson and Cindy Folkers will be dynamic and include time for participants to network and work together. These are classes, not webinars, and the goal is for each participant to come away with a strong grasp of the topics.

These classes are for people who want to be able to understand government, industry and scholarly articles better. They are not really introductory, though we are glad to work with anyone who has the interest to join. There is no considered question that is unwelcome.

Beyond Nuclear and Gender and Radiation Impact Project offer these classes together; we charge fees on a sliding scale $30–$300, you decide. Scholarships available.
