Environmental Update - December 2000

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  December 5, 2000

Marylia Kelley, Tri-Valley CAREs (925) 443-7148

WHAT: Community Health Training: Radiation, Risk and the Community. An
educational training for community members about radiation and health.  The
training will help community members from Livermore and surrounding areas
understand the potential health risks of exposure to ionizing radiation,
and will also provide tools to help them participate in decisions that may
affect their health.

WHEN: Saturday, December 9, 2000, from 10 am to 3 pm

WHERE: Livermore City Council Chamber; 3575 Pacific Avenue, Livermore
California  (Take I-580 to Livermore Ave., go south to Pacific Ave.)

WHO: Presenters include Dr. Marvin Resnikoff, an expert on radiation and
risk, with Radioactive Waste Management Associates; Dr. Peggy Reynolds, a
scientist for the California Department of Health Services, author of
several Livermore-related health studies; and Ms. Diane Quigley, an expert
on including members of the public in public health decision making, former
Executive Director of the Childhood Cancer Research Institute and currently
a Research Fellow at Syracuse University.  Pre-event interviews can be
arranged upon request.  (See Contact information above.)

WHY: For almost 50 years, nuclear weapons activities at Lawrence Livermore
National Laboratory have released radioactive and other toxic substances
into the environment. Approximately 60,000 people live in the city of
Livermore and Department of Energy environmental review documents define
the affected community as the six million people living within a 50-mile
radius of the Lab.  A more informed citizenry will be better equipped to
participate effectively in public health decision making that may affect
their lives.

Sponsored by: Physicians for Social Responsibility-San Francisco Bay Area
Chapter, Tri-Valley Communities Against a Radioactive Environment, and
Western States Legal Foundation. Partially funded by the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention, and the George Perkins Marsh Institute at
Clark University.
