Radon Awareness, Discussion, Outreach, and Networking (RADON)

2022-11-09T15:00:00Z 2022-11-09T17:00:00Z Radon Awareness, Discussion, Outreach, and Networking (RADON)

Is radon a concern in your county or community? In Michigan, 1-in-4 homes have high levels of radon gas, a naturally occurring radioactive gas known to cause lung cancer. Elevated radon levels are found in all 83 Michigan counties. This webinar is an opportunity to learn about radon, its health impacts, how to test for and reduce indoor radon levels, and to learn about EGLE's Indoor Radon Program. We will discuss what radon is, where it comes from, how it affects us, how to properly test and interpret radon test results, radon mitigation methods, and radon-resistant new construction. There will also be an opportunity for an exchange of outreach ideas for the upcoming January Radon Action Month. The presentation is intended for anyone involved or interested in radon outreach in your local community and will be of interest to local health departments, tribal government, home inspectors, and radon measurement and mitigation providers.

After registering, you will receive an email from "EGLE Outreach" with a link for you to use to join the webinar.

Individuals needing language assistance or accommodations for effective participation should contact Joel Roseberry roseberryj@michigan.gov by October 28 to request language, mobility, visual, hearing, translation, and/or other assistance.
