About the Health Survey
In an effort to address long standing questions and concerns in the Arvada, Westminster, Broomfield and surrounding communities regarding high rates of illnesses, Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) is conducting a health survey to determine if there are identifiable health effects experienced by residents that have lived downwind from the former Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant. The health survey, approved by MSU Denver’s Internal Review Board and adhering to HIPPA Guidelines, collects health data on those people living in the areas circumscribed by the boundaries of Highway 128/120th Avenue on the north, I-25 on the east, I-70 on the south, and Highway 93 on the west between 1952 and 1992 (See map below).
Inquiries regarding this survey can be directed to:
Carol Jensen, Professor, MSU Denver
