Surviving Radon-Induced Lung Cancer:
Advocates Promote More Radon Action
PRESS RELEASE UPDATED: SEP 5, 2018
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., September 5, 2018 (Newswire.com) - This year, the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) is thrilled to announce three very important keynote speakers for its 2018 International Radon Symposium in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on Sept. 30-Oct. 3. All three presenters survived radon-induced lung cancer and now work as advocates to educate the public about radon, the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smoking individuals. Each speaker is a never-smoker who was living a very active and healthy lifestyle when diagnosed with lung cancer.
The AARST International Radon Symposium™ and Trade Show attracts from around the world hundreds of attendees and over 100 presenters, manufacturers and vendors. Join us in Myrtle Beach to hear new voices of radon-induced lung cancer survival woven throughout the symposium. Attendees will be inspired by how their diagnosis and recovery shifted personal passions to an action plan. Attendees will step away with new tools to increase testing and mitigation in their community.
In addition to hearing these inspiring stories of surviving cancer, attendees will discover new directions for radon policy, emerging technical advances in measurement and mitigation, and cutting-edge radon science and research. The program will deliver a balance of training and discussion, with daily social events providing time to network and unwind. The trade show will present more than 50 radon- and business-related companies offering useful and interesting products and services.
