The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Committee on Analysis of Cancer Risks in Populations Near Nuclear Facilities is undertaking a study assessing potential risks associated with living near U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission-licensed nuclear power plants and other nuclear facilities. The next committee meeting will be held at the Beckman Center
(http:// http://www.thebeckmancenter.org/) in Irvine, California on July 21. The committee values public input during this study and is holding a public comment session at 11:30 am, July 21 in the Huntington room of the Beckman Center (agenda here: http://dels.nas.edu/resources/static-assets/nrsb/agenda/Irvine_public_agenda.pdf). The committee also welcomes written comments to be submitted to the project email.
All sessions open to the public will be webcast and available to stream from the project webpage.
About the Study: This assessment will be carried out in two consecutive phases. A Phase 1 scoping study is currently in process and will identify scientifically sound approaches for carrying out the cancer epidemiology study that has been requested by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
