November is Radon Action Month

RadonEach year, lung cancer results in more deaths than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined. Next to smoking, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer and is linked to causing the deaths of 3,200 Canadians every year. 

Radon Action Month in November, and a rising public profile on this carcinogenic gas, it’s important to be prepared to discuss the risks of radon with your patients and to be ready to answer their questions. 

McMaster University, together with Health Canada, the Ontario College of Family Physicians and the Clean Air Partnership, have designed a free, accredited program, Radon: Is it in your patients’ home, in order to provide you and your colleagues with reliable, evidence-based information. 

Be prepared to talk to your patients about household radon. Access the free, accredited,one-hour Radon course.
