RADON AWARENESS by Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville Nursing Students

It was my extreme pleasure to experience the presentation given by three SIU-E nursing students—radon champions—Aaron Archer, Kristen Mercer and Kathryn Reader at SIU-E Community Nursing Services in East St. Louis, IL on Dec. 15.

Kathi Thimsen, Director of Community Nursing Services and Instructor of Family Health and Community Health Nursing in the School of Nursing at SIU-E, does an outstanding job of encouraging her students to take a proactive approach and become involved in public health education, protection and policy making as part of their nursing training. Kathi serves as a model, in my opinion, to other health educators in training future health care providers.
