SAVE THE DATE-New York Annual Radon Partners / Stakeholder Meeting 2019

Please join us for the 2019 Annual NYSDOH Radon Stakeholder meeting to be held at the Traditions in Johnson City, NY on October 10, 2019.

The Keynote Address: Past Present, Future will be delivered by Dr. Lane Price

The American Association of Radiation Scientists and Technologists (AARST) will hold training days on Tuesday, October 8th and Wednesday, October 9th at the same location. Course topics will be shared at a later date.

This annual meeting, a State Indoor Radon Grant (SIRG) deliverable item, is designed for all that 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, provide information about our program and projects to other various stakeholders in attendance, educate and network. 41 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.

Please mark your calendars. We look forward to seeing you at this years meeting!

Thanks very much
