Jamie Stalker, M.D., has joined ORAU as physician and co-principal investigator for the National Supplemental Screening Program. She will be located in ORAU’s Arvada, Colo., office and work with John McInerney, M.D., who currently leads the program and is beginning his transition to retirement.

“Dr. Stalker brings extensive experience in the Department of Energy occupational medicine arena, including a deep familiarity with the DOE Former Worker Programs as a former NSSP Advisory Committee member,” said Andy Page, ORAU President and CEO. “We are excited to welcome her to our team and have her lead this outstanding group.”

ORAU has managed the program since its inception in 2005 and McInerney has led this program since 2006. It provides free medical screening, nationwide, for former energy workers who may have been exposed to hazardous substances at work. The screenings are designed to identify occupational diseases such as chronic respiratory illnesses, hearing loss, kidney or liver disease, and some forms of cancer. More than 22,000 enrollees have signed up for free health screening.

“I want to thank Dr. McInerney for his stellar leadership of this important program that has benefited thousands of former DOE workers,” said Page. “His knowledge and expertise have guided this team in delivering a consistent high level of patient service.”

Stalker has more than 30 years of experience in internal and occupational medicine, most recently as the Site Occupational Medical Director of Argonne National Laboratory where she set strategic direction and managed the lab’s health-related services, including occupational medicine. She is board certified in internal medicine and has more than 20 years of occupational medicine practice.

Stalker holds a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University and a doctor of medicine degree from Rush Medical College. She completed her internship at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Ill., and her residency in internal medicine at the University of Michigan Hospitals in Ann Arbor, Mich.
