William Angell (Housing Studies) has been invited to chair a session on radon risk communication for building professionals at a joint World Health Organization- and International Atomic Energy Agency-sponsored symposium in Geneva, Switzerland in early November. He will also chair a program on the radon remediation and prevention aspects of the development of national radon programs especially in small and developing countries.

Angell also received the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists' Award for his work within the radon community. Angell recently completed two terms as President of the association.

In early October 2010, Angell received the Health Physics Society North Central Chapter's Wissink Memorial Lecture Award for his presentation on radon risk, risk communication, and radon risk reduction strategies.
