NAYGN in collaboration with CNL will be hosting a “Radiation Mythbusting” webinar on October 13

  • Time: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Is all radiation bad for you? What happens to your body when you get exposed to radiation? How much dose would it take to make you grow a tail? These are the burning questions that keep us awake at night. In collaboration with Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), the NAYGN Chalk River Chapter and NAYGN University of Alberta Chapter plan to settle the matter once and for all in our exciting new webinar titled “Radiation Mythbusting.”

This event will take place on October 13, 2021 from 1:00 pm EST to 2:30 pm EST, and will feature Holly Laakso and Edouard Azzam, two world-leading researchers in the field of low-dose radiation and its effects on living things. The webinar will feature a brief presentation covering the latest research trends in this field, followed by a mythbusting segment wherein our researchers tackle some of the most common misconceptions people have about radiation. Finally, the event will conclude with a Q+A session featuring your questions about radiation.

We will be collecting your questions using the form at this link: Questions for Myth Busting Radiation Webinar ( You can submit your questions any time between now and October 3. Time is limited and priority will be given to questions based on when we receive them so be sure to submit as soon as you can!

Attendance at this event is free, and open to NAYGN members and the general public so spread the word to anyone who might be interested.
