Join Renown Institute for Cancer and Nevada Radon Education Program as they answer questions and provide free radon test kits to the community.
Radon is a Group 1 carcinogen according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer classification of carcinogenic agents. Like nicotine, it is among those substances that undeniably cause cancer in humans. Scientists believe continual exposure to indoor radon is the greatest risk to developing lung cancer, second only to smoking.

The good news? Exposure to radon and the subsequent health risks are preventable. You can test your home for the presence of radon with a simple radon test kit. For more information and to obtain a free radon test kit, stop by our booth at Renown Regional Medical Center, right next to Starbucks.
