    Understanding Radon: Four Industry Experts Share Their Perspective

    A "can’t miss" round table and open floor discussion on Radon

    Join us on November 24th, 8:30 am – 10:30 am at the Norwood Hotel to dispel myths, hear real perspectives and understand how this gas can impact the health of the people in your building. A representative from Health Canada, the Canadian Association of Radon Scientist and Technologists (CARST), a Radon Consultant and a Mitigation Solutions Firm will be involved in the discussion.

    During this special seminar, a brief introduction to radon and it’s health risks will be provided, after which, our 4 guest panelists will conduct an open forum discussion on the misconceptions about radon, how to measure and mitigate radon and why it’s important that all buildings get tested.

    Let's Evict Radon - Calgary Town Hall Sessions

    Radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in non smokers, and the second leading cause in smokers. Because Radon is an odourless and colourless gas, many Albertans are not aware that it is accumulating in their homes. Once the gas enters your lungs, it causes DNA mutations that lead to cancer. 1 in 8 Albertan homes tested over 200 Bq/m3, currently Canada’s maximum acceptable radon-included cancer risk limit.

    Having your home tested is the only way to determine the risk to you and your loved ones from radon gas.

    Join Dr. Aaron Goodarzi in an informative discussion on radon and why it is so important you learn more about it.

    Dr. Aaron Goodarzi is a globally recognized researcher in the field of DNA damage repair, Aaron Goodarzi PhD, has made breakthroughs in understanding how DNA damage can cause and predict cancer. He is also a public advocate for residential testing of radon gas and is currently leading a campaign to test tens of thousands of homes across Alberta for radon, a Class I carcinogen that is a leading cause of terminal lung cancer in non-smokers.

    7th Annual CARST Radon Conference 2018



     

    This year’s conference will be held April 22 to 24 at the beautiful Brookstreet Hotel www.brookstreethotel.com in Ottawa.

    The theme of this year’s event is An Elemental Approach: Radon in Earth, Air & Water.  

    This year we have chosen a location in central Canada to encourage participation from people across the country.

    This is a key year in RADON as public interest expands: we need to continue work in radon research and radon awareness. This year's conference will be packed with valuable information for both hands-on radon professionals and those with an interest in increasing their knowledge on current initiatives.


    Pre-Conference Activities:

    Field Trip: Saturday April 21 8:30am - 4:00pm

    A special feature at this year’s conference will be an optional day-long field trip.  Exclusively for CARST members, the field trip will feature a visit to the National Research Council’s radon test facilities, a large building walk-through from a measurement and mitigation perspective, and a hands-on look at radon in water.  Last year’s inaugural field trip was hugely popular and sold out quickly, so sign up early if you don’t want to miss out! Space on the bus is limited.

    Continuing Education Courses: Sunday, April 22 8:30am to 5:00pm

    As always, there are plenty of fascinating continuing education (CE) courses available on the Sunday of the Conference.  We’ll be posting details as the Conference approaches, but be sure to book your arrival in time to take advantage of this training opportunity.
