RadonLeaders.org is an online learning and action network supporting the Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign. Each year, the National Radon Conference is organized and sponsored by the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD)* and is held in conjunction with the International Radon Symposium, organized and sponsored by American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST). At the 2007 meetings, leaders from CRCPD, AARST, and EPA’s Radon program launched the Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign, with the goal of doubling the number of lives saved from radon-induced lung cancer within 5 years. Subsequently, the organizations agreed on the need to develop an online platform to continue the collaborative efforts needed to support the Campaign goal throughout the year. CRCPD agreed to develop and host such a platform, with close collaboration from AARST and EPA on content. RadonLeaders.org was launched at the 2008 meetings.
RadonLeaders.org connects radon stakeholders through interactive tools (e.g. Blogs, Discussion Forums), and features information and resources like the Resource Bank, and Radon Change Package to help facilitate action and radon risk reduction. To learn more visit the RadonLeaders.org FAQ.
