Nuclear Care Partners has scheduled a breakfast event for former uranium and nuclear weapons production workers.
The event is set for 9 a.m. April 4 at the IHOP restaurant located at 2420 U.S. Highway 6 & 50 in Grand Junction.
The event will offer information about federal government benefits to former uranium and nuclear weapons production workers, including those who worked at the Atomic Energy Commission compound, who’ve developed illnesses from exposure to radiation and toxic materials.
“Former AEC compound and uranium workers sacrificed their health to deter — and, if necessary fight — a nuclear war. They deserve our help in return,” said John Kelley, community outreach manager at Nuclear Care Partners. “That’s why we’re having this event — to let them know we’re here for them and to answer their questions.
Nuclear Care Partners provides in-home health services to uranium and nuclear weapons production workers under federal laws providing benefits to those who’ve developed illnesses from exposure to radiation and chemicals.
