Member Antone Brooks Publishes Book on Low-Dose Radiation

The Health Physics Society (HPS) has been supporting passage of bill H.R. 4657 to restart the Department of Energy (DOE) Low-Dose Radiation Research Program. (See David Connolly's column on the topic in the May 2018 issue of Health Physics News.) HPS member Dr. Antone Brooks has authored the book Low Dose Radiation: The History of the U.S. Department of Energy Research Program, published by Washington State University Press. If you haven't purchased a copy of the book by the 2018 HPS Annual Meeting in Cleveland, Brooks may have some available for purchase at the meeting. If you want to read it before then, it is available on for $39.95. Brooks will be a plenary speaker at the Cleveland meeting and has also generously donated three copies of his book for the HPS publications booth book drawing.
