Published on: Mar 04, 2021

One of the longest serving BEMS members Dr. Chung-Kwang Chou, or “C-K.” as many people know him, was honored on January 5, 2021 with the prestigious 2020 IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Lifetime Achievement Award for his “continued energy, persistence and dedication to inclusiveness of scientific thought through participation and leadership in the IEEE International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES) across almost five decades.”

Through years of rigorous, evidence-based experiments, C-K devoted his career to researching and measuring the effects of human and animal exposure to the electromagnetic field (EMF) energy emitted by different kinds of devices. Equally as important, he was also an instrumental figure in pushing for the worldwide adoption of IEEE safety standards to determine the safe levels of exposure to EMF. Many congratulations to C-K from all of us at BEMS.
