National Radon Action Month January

You might not think of radon, a naturally occurring gas, as a women’s health issue. But in many ways, it is exactly that. Listen to an expert describe radon and the issues surrounding it. Learn where it is found, the health effects of radon exposure, and how to protect your home and family against this potential deadly exposure.

Rose Hoban interviews featured guest Phillip Gibson, North Carolina Radon Program Coordinator, Division of Health Service Regulation, Radiation Protection Section, North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.
