- I hope to be able to share this knowledge with the Disaster Healthcare Volunteers. There are many topics I could choose from. I believe most would be interested in what I learned about chromosomal damage due to radiation exposure. We have not had any training related to this aspect of radiation exposure and there is much more knowledge than I was aware of.


- I thought the lectures were great.

They cover many areas of radiation exposure and injuries.

The level of details was also just right. Through all the lectures, we cover a wide understanding of radiation.
