JHU Former Workers Program


The Bloomberg School of Public Health and collaborators are funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to conduct a medical screening program for former workers at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and Sandia National Laboratories-Albuquerque (SNL-AL) in New Mexico. The purpose of the program is to provide free medical evaluations to former workers who were exposed to hazardous substances during their employment at the laboratories, and discover if the health of former workers was affected.

The medical screening program examines and tests former LANL and SNL-AL workers for adverse health effects related to the following agents: asbestosberylliumleadnoiseradiation, and solvents. In addition, former SNL-AL workers are examined and tested for adverse health effects related to silica.
