MINNEAPOLIS—The Minneapolis-St. Paul office of Weber Shandwick has been appointed to handle a campaign for the Minnesota Department of Veteran Affairs. Weber Shandwick will support the organization’s campaign to provide complete and accurate information about depleted uranium and drive awareness about government-provided screening services for exposure.
The MDVA is committed to ensuring that Minnesota’s veterans, their dependents and survivors receive the full measure of benefits and services to which they are entitled.
With funding from the Minnesota state legislature to notify veterans about the availability of uranium testing, Weber Shandwick will support the project by organizing a forum with an expert panel to explain the facts about DU, put the risks into context and share the state government’s interest in addressing DU now. The agency will assist experts in developing a white paper of existing research, preparing supporting materials and conducting media outreach.
