OAK RIDGE, Tenn. –ORAU employee Bill Tankersley participates in the 2008 ORAU Health and Safety Fair by getting his lung function checked with the help of Sharon Ollis of Methodist Medical Center. The Feb. 6 event, which took place at Pollard Technology Conference Center, was hosted by ORAU’s Occupational Health Office and involved more than 30 exhibitors from internal departments as well as throughout the Oak Ridge community.
