Radon CE

Lifetime risk of radon-induced lung cancer is 62 per 1,000 ever smokers compared to 7 per 1,000 never smokers. Few homeowners are aware of the combined risk of tobacco smoke and radon exposure. Many residents do not view radon as an immediate health risk in their home, despite the fact that radon exposure is associated with an estimated 21,000 annual deaths from lung cancer in the United Sates.

Learn how to talk with your tobacco treatment program participants, patients and families about the combined risk of tobacco smoke and radon exposure. Complete one of our two Radon CEs for Health Professionals earning CME, CHES, RS or RRT credits or for Nurses earning KBN credits.
