COVID-19 Update from WHPP

As of March 18, 2020, WHPP will be temporarily postponing routine occupational health screenings in order to prevent unnecessary travel and POTENTIAL exposure to participants and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Medically necessary 3 AND 6 MONTH follow-up appointment for the Early Lung Cancer Detection Program will continue as advised by program physicians.

The CDC has advised healthcare facilities to use strategies to prevent patients to only the most necessary visits at this time. We look forward to resuming screenings when it is medically advisable.

If you have any urgent medical concerns, please contact your healthcare provider. WHPP enrollment and other program activities will continue where applicable.

For specific program related questions, we can be reached at
1-888-241-1199 and will return voicemails in a timely manner.

The Worker Health Protection Program (WHPP) provides free medical screening for former and current workers* at fourteen Department of Energy (DOE) sites across the country.

The goal of WHPP is to provide medical screening to detect work-related illnesses at an early stage when medical intervention may be helpful. In addition, it helps workers determine if a current health condition is the result of a work-related exposure. For the first time, former and current workers at DOE sites have the opportunity to obtain an independent, objective assessment of their health in relation to their prior workplace exposures by a physician with expertise in occupational medicine.

The program is funded by a contract from the DOE and is led by Queens College of the City University of New York in partnership with the United Steelworkers (USW), Atomic Trades and Labor Council (ATLC),  and the former Fernald Atomic Trades and Labor Council (FATLC).
