McMaster University, in partnership with Health Canada, the Ontario College of Family Physicians and the Clean Air Partnership, have designed a certified program to provide professionals working in the health industry with reliable, evidence-based information on radon.

For non-smokers, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in Canada and has been linked to the deaths of 3,200 Canadians every year. All homes have some level of radon and talking to patients about the need to test their homes is an important part of preventing radon-related cancer.
