Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility welcomes Dr. Helen Caldicott, pediatrician, author and founder of PSR, as the featured speaker at Lessons from Fukushima for the Northwest. The day long forum looks at the legacy of the nuclear meltdowns, and scopes the risks the region faces. Other speakers include nuclear experts Dr. Arnie Gundersen and Robert Alvarez, who will characterize the failures of Japan’s reactors and talk about what an earthquake would do to Washington’s reactor and nearby nuclear waste. The forum is open to the public.
Caldicott will also speak by video conference with the hospitals throughout Washington State. She will talk about the radioactive hot particles and radioactive Iodine from the burning reactors that were blown from Japan to the U.S. She will focus on how the radiation affected the Japanese children and older populations.
