  • workshop sessions to collaborate towards protecting those most vulnerable to these microwave radiation exposures.

The meeting location is within walking distance of House and Senate office buildings.

On Wednesday, October 5 there will be presentations from scientists and medical professionals on the health effects of EMF, cell phone research, effects of microwave radiation on the heart, wireless safety standards and smart meters.

Later, participants will gather into groups and discuss issues of interest to them, such as concerns of patients, policy, and parents.

During the last segment of the day, there will sessions on a unified core message and “Taking Care of Us” in which participants will learn helpful techniques to benefit their health as they engage in advocacy.
