We face a legacy of incomplete knowledge about Chernobyl’s public health consequences. Accounting for these is not a closed matter, but hinges on what kinds of research and investments are applied, and over what timescale. A needed reckoning with complex truths can pave the way for better responses to future disasters.

NEW! Come early to join a PhD candidate or collections expert for a pre-lecture Daily Dig object talk at 4:30pm that will highlight the each month's lecture topic, with no registration required. And before each of the Greats Lectures, the Museum Café will serve delicious, daily-prepared hot entrees, soup, and sandwiches. Arrive in the late afternoon to enjoy all the Museum has to offer!
