What is RadonLeaders.org?
RadonLeaders.org is an online learning and action network supporting the Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign. The Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign and RadonLeaders.org have been developed and are jointly run by the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST), Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD), and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Indoor Environments Division (IED). For more information about the Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign partners, please visit the About section.
RadonLeaders.org helps to facilitate the Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign goal of doubling the current level of activity in the radon community during the next five years to increase the number of lives saved from radon-induced lung cancer and reduce the radon risk gap. RadonLeaders.org connects radon stakeholders through interactive tools and resources, and features resources such as the Radon Change Package, which features proven strategies for reducing radon risks.

This website was developed under Cooperative Agreement No. XA-83314001 awarded to Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. As a Cooperative Agreement, EPA has substantial involvement in the project’s development, as defined by the Federal Grant and Cooperative Agreement Act of 1977, providing comments and suggestions to CRCPD. Although the EPA logo appears on the website to reflect EPA’s involvement in the project, RadonLeaders.org is not an official U.S. Government web site. The views expressed by the users of Radonleaders.org do not necessarily represent the views or positions of the U.S. Government, U.S. EPA, CRCPD, or the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists.
What is The Radon Change Package?
The Radon Change Package is a guide for achieving life saving results, including radon tests, mitigations, and radon resistant new construction (RRNC). It synthesizes years of research, including studies of effective ways to promote residential action to reduce health risks; historical analysis of the national radon program; field research on program strategies with a demonstrated link to mitigation and RRNC results; and ideas from CRCPD’s Radon Cookbook and EPA’s Local Efforts to Reduce Exposure to Radon.
The Change Package captures the current knowledge base to support the Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign. It presents strategies, approaches, and actions that state radon programs and their industry and community partners can use to improve program effectiveness and double their results.
