The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) and collaborators are funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop and conduct a Medical Exam Program for Former Workers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and the Sandia National Laboratories (SNL-AL) in New Mexico. The purpose of the program is to provide free medical evaluations to former workers who were exposed to hazardous substances during their employment at the laboratories. The program is trying to find out if the health of former workers was affected as a result of their past work.

The Medical Exam Program for Former LANL Workers provides examinations and testing that focus on adverse health effects related to the following agents:

The Medical Exam Program for Former SNL Workers provides examinations and testing that focus on adverse health effects related to the following

  • Been significantly exposed to one of the agents listed above,
  • Been employed by one or more of the following employers:
    • University of California
    • Zia
    • Pan Am World Services
    • Johnson Controls International

To be eligible for a free medical exam, former SNL workers must have:

  • Worked at the SNL site anytime between 1949 and the present,
  • Been significantly exposed to one of the agents listed above,
  • Been employed by one or more of the following employers:

The Program offers former workers a one-time free medical exam with selected tests. Former LANL workers who participated in the program are eligible for a re-examination and testing if they had past exposure to asbestos and/or beryllium and it has been 3 years since their initial examination. Those former LANL or SNL workers who would like to participate in the program but live outside of New Mexico are referred to the National Supplemental Screening Program (NSSP) for their examination and testing. The majority of exams will be offered to former workers who are eligible as determined by the Program. However, a limited number of exams will be provided to former workers who wish to receive an exam regardless of their eligibility status.
