UGA Extension has a mission to extend lifelong learning opportunities and advance the well-being of Gwinnett citizens through unbiased research based education in areas of youth development, the environment, and family and consumer science. To bring in the New Year, UGA Extension is promoting "January, the Radon Action Month."
Raising awareness about the significance of Radon is important because you cannot see, smell or taste Radon, but it can be present at a dangerous level in your home. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in America and claims the lives of about 21,000 Americans each year. UGA Extension and Live Healthy Gwinnetturges you to protect yourself and your family this upcoming year.
