Announcing the New York Radon Stakeholder Fall Meeting

Please join us for the 2018 Annual New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Radon Stakeholder meeting to be held at the Traditions at the Glen in Johnson City, NY on October 25, 2018.

The keynote address, Avoiding Lung Cancer: Improving the Air We Breathe, will be presented by Ronald Hublall, MD, Guthrie Medical Center.

The American Association of Radiation Scientists and Technologists (AARST) will hold training days on Tuesday, October 23rd and Wednesday, October 24th at the same location prior to the meeting.

This annual meeting, a State Indoor Radon Grant (SIRG) deliverable item, is designed for all who have a stake in protecting the public from unnecessary exposure to radon in their homes and schools. Topics of discussion are issues of common interest to the stakeholders. Our meeting goals are:

  • to provide updates to our county partners;
  • to provide information about our program and projects to other various stakeholders in attendance;
  • to educate; and
  • to network.

Forty-one counties in New York State are considered targeted counties – meaning the likelihood of elevated levels of radon when testing are greater than in other areas of the state.

Attached as one document are:

  • the agenda for the meeting;
  • registration information; and
  • course overview/registration for the AARST training days.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s meeting!

Regards,
