About RADS International RADS International (RADS Int) was created by Taryn Bock who lives in Australia and was injured in her workplace in 2012 after one breathe of toxic and chemical laden steam and after many months of being misdiagnosed, was finally diagnosed as having RADS.
She is passionate and works tirelessly about shining a light on RADS and sharing information, education and support to anyone with RADS.

Awareness: We offer a PDF about RADS here for you todownload print and share. We may also be available to speak at your company, school or community outlets about living with RADS, so please contact us.
Research & Treatment We are not currently aware of any clinically tested, successful ongoing medications for RADS. In the meantime, the writer and peers have found avoiding triggers, creating a clean air environment and building a management plan with your health care professional to be extremely helpful.

Advocacy - We are looking forward to developing relationships with various government departments in the health sector and private enterprise to champion and assist us in educating more people about RADS and highlighting the everyday impacts someone with RADS faces.
