As the conference season gets into full swing, Radonova will be attending and exhibiting at two events next month as the need for reliable radon measurement services increases. As a leading global radon laboratory, Radonova plays an active role in conferences and research-based initiatives which highlight the dangers of radon exposure.
On March 3, the 14th Radon Stakeholders Conference takes place in Nebraska City, NE at the Lied Lodge Hotel and Conference Center. The event brings together organizations that have a role in protecting the public from unnecessary radon exposure – a radioactive gas which causes an estimated 21,000 deaths a year – in their homes, schools and businesses. During the day attendees will receive presentations on this public health risk, network and discuss common issues amongst stakeholders, while also looking ahead to challenges and opportunities the future offers in minimizing radon exposure to the public.
The general ethos of the conference is to share best practice and educate attendees on state-of-the-art prevention technologies. Presenters include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the EPA Center for Radon and Air Toxics, the American Lung Association and the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists. Registration is open here.
On March 5, the 6th Illinois Radon Stakeholders Conference kicks off with two days at Pinstripes in Oak Brook, IL. On each day the same content is replicated, enabling attendees to find a suitable time to fit their schedules. The agenda will focus on changes in regulation, radon testing and training and group networking. Primary stakeholders for this conference include the Illinois Radon Program, Midwest AARST and the American Lung Association. To register go here.
Bill Rounds, President of Radonova, said: “These educational conferences are crucial as they bring together the major stakeholders who are tasked with reducing the risk of radon exposure to the public. The forums provide us with platforms for knowledge sharing and best practice, which is important if we are going to tackle this nationwide health issue. People do not have to live with high levels of radon. It can easily be reduced, but first you need to test and understand what your exposure level is.”
Radon causes lung cancer. It is an invisible, odourless and tasteless gas that can accumulate to unnaturally high and dangerous levels in homes and workplaces. Young people and children are more vulnerable to radon as they have higher respiratory rates than adults. It occurs naturally across the United States at varying concentrations.
