CHD’s First Direct Debate with Telecom: “5G – Friend or Foe?”—June 23rd, 2020, 1:00 p.m. Eastern

By Dafna Tachover, Director, CHD’s 5G and Wireless Harms Project


On June 23rd, 2020, 1:00 p.m. Eastern 10:00 am Pacific, Children’s Health Defense will take part in the first ever direct debate with the telecom industry, titled: “5G – Friend or Foe?”

The event is organized by GCS Connect, part of GCS Recruitment, located in Dublin. GCS is a leading international Telecom and Hi-Tech recruitment company with offices in Europe, USA and Asia and it has been at the forefront of digital transformation, recruiting professionals for the leading telecom companies around the world.

As part of the GCS Webinar program, they decided to address the conflicting information we have been seeing and hearing in the news about the 5G rollout. They gathered a panel of 5G experts from around the globe from both sides of the isle, to explain their position and answer questions.

The Children’s Health Defense is excited for this opportunity. We are looking forward to speaking directly to those who invent this technology and deploy it, and to educate them about the science and the extent of the adverse health effects and tragedies their technology has been creating. Our hope is that this will get the telecom companies to invest in developing safer technologies and help lead to a much needed change.
