Radon Leaders Saving Lives
RadonLeaders.org is an online learning and action network supporting the Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign.
In 2007, leaders from CRCPD, AARST, and EPA’s Radon program launched the Radon Leaders Saving Lives Campaign, with the goal of doubling the number of lives saved from radon-induced lung cancer within 5 years. RadonLeaders.org was launched in 2008. It connects radon stakeholders through interactive tools and resources, and features resources such as the Radon Change Package, which features proven strategies for reducing radon risks.
