The American Lung Association is pleased to announce the availability of the Radon Basics online course. It is a free one-hour interactive online learning program designed to help people understand more about radon, the second leading cause of lung cancer. We are especially proud of this work because it is yet another project that was among our own late Janice Nolen’s accomplishments.

This course is designed to be appropriate for anyone who wants to learn more about radon and about how to test for it and fix problems, including home buyers, real estate professionals and home inspectors concerned about safe and healthy housing. Radon Basics can also equip healthcare professionals, community health workers and public environmental health educators with information they can use to encourage people to protect their health and their home.
