Register for a free webinar at noon EST: https://radiationsafety-ca.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0qcOmurDMvGdI8VYnt0KX3FLb2yu5KPjco.
November is National Radon Action Month. Learn about the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP)’s test of consumer-grade electronic radon monitors. To provide Canadian consumers with an unbiased performance-based comparison of the electronic radon monitors available to them, the C-NRPP developed a test procedure and conducted performance tests using RSIC’s certified radon chamber. Pam Warkentin, the executive director of the Canadian Association of Radon Scientist and Technologists (CARST) and the C-NRPP, and Brian Bjorndal, Director of the Fergal Nolan National Laboratories, will present on the study. Representatives from Health Canada will also be joining during the Q&A to help answer questions people may have about radon, a form of radiation that is found in many buildings at high enough levels to put people at increased risk of lung cancer.
The information session will be followed by a 20-minute wellness break: beginner Tai-Chi led by Charlmane Wong of Ji Hong Tai Chi & Qi Gong of Richmond Hill, Ontario.
