Former U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Worker Medical Screening Programs

303.398.1520 

National Jewish Health provides medical screening examinations to former Department of Energy workers through two national medical screening programs. While the eligibility requirements are different for each program, the medical screening examinations offered to workers are very similar.  Common exposures for many workers at these sites include asbestos, beryllium, and radiation. The programs collect additional work or exposure information to customize the screening examination to you.
