Dr. Helen Caldicott to visit Portland

The Smithsonian Institution has named Caldicott as one of the most influential women of the 20th century. For more than 20 years she has been an outspoken critic of nuclear weapons and radiation exposure. She is an author, pediatrician and peace movement leader.
Dr. Caldicott has been awarded 19 honorary doctoral degrees and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling. She was awarded the Lannan Foundation Prize for Cultural Freedom in 2003, and in 2006, the Peace Organisation of Australia presented her with the inaugural Australian Peace Prize "for her longstanding commitment to raising awareness about the medical and environmental hazards of the nuclear age".

She is the author of numerous books including:

Nuclear Madness (1979)
