7th B.C. Radon Workshop

November 8, 2018

Burnaby, BC

"Building Momentum: Strategies and Solutions"

The BC Lung Association is holding its 7th Annual Radon Workshop on November 8, 2018 at the Element Hotel in Burnaby, BC. The objective of the workshop is to provide a platform for experts in the field to share their knowledge in addition to building collaborative partnerships to reduce radon induced lung cancer death in our province and Canada.

Radon is a ubiquitous, naturally occurring radioactive gas in open atmosphere that comes from the decay of uranium, which is distributed throughout soil and rocks. Radon and its decay products are found in higher concentrations in confined space such as homes, buildings and underground workplaces. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers and the second leading cause after smoking. Considering that radon is a public health problem, any action plan activities need to be managed in coordination with the different sectors in society.

This workshop will present ideas, challenges and case studies from experts in the field. Workshop participants will be inspired and encouraged to take action in reducing the radon exposure of the BC population and associated lung cancer risk.
