The Evict Radon National Study is a volunteer-led non-profit organization that combines grassroots science engagement and citizen science-based research in a way perhaps never seen before in Canada for preventing cancers. The Evict Radon National Study is led by Dr. Aaron Goodarzi of the University of Calgary, and involves researchers and scientific partners from: BC Cancer Agency (BC), Simon Fraser University (BC), University of Calgary (AB), University of Saskatchewan (SK), University of Ottawa (ON), Université Laval (QC), Dalhousie University (NS), Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (ON), the National Research Council (of Canada), and Health Canada.
All of our volunteer efforts and funding are designed to encourage as many Canadians to test their home for radon through our National Evict Radon research study. Everything we do strictly adheres to national research ethics standards, as well as best practices for controlled studies that will pass academic peer-review and, ultimately, very close scrutiny from the public and experts. Achieving a radon risk-free future for Canada is very possible and, if successful, prevent literally thousands of new, mostly high lethality lung cancers each year.
