Radon Exposure in Nova Scotia: Challenges and Solutions Workshop
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas and is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada. This free workshop brought together stakeholders working on radon in Nova Scotia and surrounding areas to learn more about radon in the region and what’s being done to reduce exposures. It was an opportunity for attendees to connect with others interested in radon and brainstorm ways that radon-induced lung cancers can be prevented.
