Outreach

Nevada Radiation Exposure Screening and Education Program (RESEP)

Nevada RESEP aims to increase awareness about the effects of U.S. nuclear testing and to improve the health of those who were affected. To do this, we reach out to communities all around the state.

Our team attends health fairs and public meetings, gives presentations at community centers, and looks for other opportunities to share information about the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act and the free services Nevada RESEP offers.

How You Can Help

You can help by inviting a RESEP team member to your community or by sharing information at local community meetings, social gatherings, churches, school reunions, and other places where people may benefit from knowing about RECA or Nevada RESEP services.

To invite one of our team members to your community or to request materials, please email nevadaresep@med.unr.edu or contact us at (702) 992-6887.
