Learn More About Radon and Test Your Home

As a non-profit organization, The American Lung Association has as one of its missions to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.

One in every fifteen homes are subjected to high levels of radon exposure. And due to its naturally occurring, odorless, tasteless composition, it can easily go unnoticed. We would love to encourage your community to learn more about radon and possibly test their homes.

Please see the radon_infographic_ for more information about radon and a link as to where to purchase low-cost test kits.
