As part of our continuing outreach efforts, we are inviting all members of the community to an information session on nuclear power and radiation in our environment with Dr. Doug Boreham, Division Head of Medical Sciences, at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine.

Dr. Boreham will introduce attendees to the various forms of radiation and discuss the role it plays in our daily lives and nuclear energy production, said James Scongack, Vice-President, Corporate Affairs.

Bruce Power always strives to provide as much real, factual information as possible to the people of our surrounding communities and across Ontario,

Scongack said.

Dr. Boreham is one of the foremost experts in the field of nuclear medicine, yet can explain radiation in terms even the uninitiated can understand. I highly recommend interested members of the public take this opportunity to learn from Dr. Boreham.”

The information session will run Friday, May 16, from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Bruce Power Visitors’ Centre, on County Rd. 20, north of Tiverton. A complimentary lunch will be provided, and the session is on a first-come, first-serve basis. To sign up, contact rsvp@brucepower.com before Tuesday, May 13.
