Helping Canadians Reduce Radon Risk


An Elemental Approach: RADON in EARTH AIR WATER

This year's conference was a great success due to an amazing array of informative speakers, supporting and engaging sponsor exhibits, amazing group of participants and networking opportunities and of course, the 2nd annual Radon Olympics to keep the participants entertained.

As speakers provide us with permission to post their presentations, we will link the pdf of their slides to the schedule page, please note, we will not be posting any presentations of speakers who are in the process of publishing their research, as it may affect their ability to publish in certain publications.
