Learning about the Risks of Low-Dose Radiation Exposure from the experiences of Chernobyl: Dealing with Radioactive Contamination from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accidents

2012-4-13 (Fri) 4:00 p.m. - 7:45 p.m.

The Global Collaboration Center (GLOCOL) is holding the seminar, "Learning about the Risks of Low-Dose Radiation Exposure from the experiences of Chernobyl: Dealing with Radioactive Contamination from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accidents" on Friday, April 13.

This seminar welcomes two speakers, a specialist in the health effects of low-dose radiation in Belarus who has been researching low-dose radiation exposure following the nuclear power plant accident in Chernobyl and a pediatric radiologist from the Ukraine.

It is hoped this seminar will be a good opportunity to consider the radioactive contamination that we must face and deal with. There will be a Question and Answer session in the second half of this seminar.

This seminar will cover the following topics:

  • The actual state of affairs regarding chronic exposure to low-dose radiation in areas affected by the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
  • The validity of permissible radiation exposure levels when viewed in comparison to survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings.
  • The situation regarding radiation exposure in children.
  • Does Fukushima also face problems similar to those in Chernobyl?

General citizens are also invited to attend this seminar.
