In recent months, NB Lung has been on the move, organizing Community Radon Testing Drives across New Brunswick to raise awareness about the dangers of radon exposure and provide essential resources to local communities.

In November, the NB Lung team travelled to Havelock, NB, after hearing the story of Angela Stief Lea, a local resident battling radon-induced lung cancer. Moved by her experience, we worked with the local community to organize a testing drive at the Havelock Elementary School, offering free radon test kits and hosting an informative session. The response was overwhelming as we distributed approximately 400 test kits, empowering residents to take control of their indoor air quality.

In February, we travelled to St. Andrews, where the W.C. O’Neill Arena became our hub for another impactful testing drive. Once again, our team engaged with the community, distributing around 400 test kits and leading enlightening discussions on radon awareness and mitigation strategies.

These initiatives underscore NB Lung’s commitment to proactive health advocacy and community empowerment. Radon, a colorless and odorless gas, poses a significant health risk when accumulated indoors, yet its threat often goes unnoticed. By bringing testing drives directly to communities, we aim to bridge the gap between awareness and action, ensuring that every resident has the tools and knowledge to safeguard their lung health.

As we continue our journey across New Brunswick, NB Lung invites all communities to join us in our mission to combat radon exposure. Together, we can create safer environments for ourselves and future generations.

Stay tuned for updates on upcoming testing drives and other initiatives aimed at promoting lung health and well-being in our communities.
