CPH Professor Bill Field was honored March 6, 2018, with the Iowa Radon Hero Award from the Iowa Department of Public Health for his work as a researcher, educator, and advocate.
He was presented with the award at the EPA Region 7 Radon Stakeholders Meeting in Des Moines. The meeting was attended by more than 200 stakeholders, including radon testers, radon mitigation specialists, members of the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists, representatives from the various state cancer coalitions, and representatives from state and local health departments. In addition, EPA representatives from Region 7 and Washington were also in attendance.
The award reads: “We recognize Dr. Field as one of the foremost authorities on radon, not only for his research into the radioactive gas but because of his advocacy and outreach efforts to promote the testing and mitigation of homes and schools for radon, not just here in Iowa, but nationally and internationally.”
