Becky McClain Recieves Award and Speaks at Calaway Award Presentation in D.C

Becky McClain, injured Pfizer Molecular Biologist and Health and
Safety Advocate speaks at Callaway Awards Presentation on
12/8/2010 in Washington, D.C.

I met Becky McClain several years ago after she had become ill from a biological exposure at Pfizer. It was a very interesting connection as I have been exposed (like millions of others) to the Lyme disease spirochete which may ...or may not have escaped from Plum Island or other nearby labs. I have attended some of the Pfizer/McClain trial sessions and have been included in some of Becky's activism efforts. I am very proud to know her and wanted to share with all of you what she is fighting for. Listen to Becky's speech below where she emphasizes the importance of worker safety and how the public should also be concerned and become involved. This issue of worker safety and biological safety affects all of us.

What Is The Callaway Award? Here is a description from Wikepedia
