Colorado State University Extension is offering three scholarships for the Center for Environmental Research and Technology Institute Mitigation Course which includes measurement and mitigation courses (each a $595 value). The scholarships also include three memberships to American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) (approximate value of $250). By providing scholarships for mitigation training and memberships to AARST, CSU Extension is providing an opportunity for people involved in construction, remodeling or handyman businesses to get the required training to meet this growing demand for mitigating homes in this region.
Although most U.S. children under age six spend up to 40 hours a week in child care settings, little has been done to protect young children from environmental health hazards like radon in child care and preschools. The Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN) is a national, multidisciplinary, non-profit organization whose mission is to protect the fetus and the child from environmental hazards and promote a healthy environment by focusing on the areas of research, policy, and education. Recognizing preschools and child care settings as a missed opportunity to address children’s environmental health. In response, CEHN launched the Georgia Healthy Environments for Child Care Facilities and Preschools (HECCP) program in 2006.
