Evicting Radon as a Source of Canadian
Dr. Aaron Goodarzi is the Canada Research Chair for Radiation Exposure Disease, a professor at the University of Calgary, and is the leader of the national Evict Radon program, a non-profit radon awareness organization that enables public sector scientist- and physician-led research on radon gas. This team is comprised of radiation biologists, geologists, clinicians, psychologists, population health experts and architects based at multiple Canadian universities. Dr. Goodarzi will give a clear outline of what radon is, why Canadians need to know and care about being exposed to it, and speak about the team's most recent radon research. He will also outline how any Canadian can get involved in this citizen scientist based public research, and what to do if you find if you have high radon exposure in your home, school or workplace – because radon is the most readily preventable cause of the most common and lethal type of cancer in Canada.
