Reprinted with permission from the Radon in Georgia, Georgia Radon Education Program Newsletter, September 2018

The Georgia Radon Program hired a new Radon Educator in September after the departure of Gabrielle Dean, who was with the program for over four years. Derek Cooper, the new Radon Educator, has a B.S. in Environmental Health Science. He brings experience working with private environmental companies, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the University of Georgia Office of Sustainability. Derek attended the International Radon Symposium in Myrtle Beach in late September where he trained to become a certified residential measurement provider under the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP). He has already participated in programs and is actively involved in helping to increase awareness and knowledge about radon in the state of Georgia. To contact Derek, send him an e-mail dmc20@uga.edu or call 706-583-0602.
