The Low Level Radiation and Health Conference was set up in 1985 by members of the public keen to find out more about these issues. Since its inception, the conference has invited those carrying out research to present their findings in an accessible way to members of the public and those with an interest. Thanks to Professor Carmel Mothersill we were able to run on our event from one she organised for the International Union of Radioecologists and kindly some of the IUR speakers stayed on to present. In addition, Rik offered to film the entire event.
