Who are we?
Evict Radon is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to solving Canada’s substantial and worsening radon-gas exposure problem through interdisciplinary research for the benefit of all Canadians. Led by Dr. Aaron Goodarzi of the University of Calgary, the federally-appointed Canada Research Chair for Radiation Exposure Disease, Evict Radon is working towards educating Canadians about the harmful effects of radon gas.
By purchasing an Evict Radon test device and participating in the research study, participants enable the research of a confederation of Canadian medical doctors, biologists, geologists, architects, clinical psychologists, communications professionals, and population health experts. Our team combines grassroots science engagement and citizen science-based research in a way perhaps never seen before in Canada for preventing cancers.
Together, this group of scholars aim for nothing less than building the essential knowledge needed to ‘evict’ radon as a future source of lung cancer, saving thousands of lives and billions in health care costs.
