HTDS Guide - Timeline



1986 - 1987

1986-1987
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) releases classified documents describing radiation releases at Hanford.

1986
CDC forms an independent panel of scientists (Hanford Health Effects Review Panel) to evaluate DOE documents.

Hanford Health Effects Review Panel recommends two studies: 1) to estimate radiation doses received by area residents (which became known as the Hanford Environmental Dose Reconstruction Project (HEDR), 2) to examine the feasibility of studying the potential health effects of iodine-131 among exposed populations (which led to the HTDS).

CDC forms second independent panel (Hanford Historical Documents Review Committee) to continue analysis of DOE documents.

1987
