Radon awareness through animal wellness

Medical conditions that veterinarians see in animals are similar to those doctors see in patients. But the diseases often develop earlier in the animals. Test the home for radon. Prevent radon-induced cancers.

The Bark Side of Radon, presented by Radon Environmental, is a national public awareness campaign promoting home-owner radon testing through pet health. The campaign started as a health promotion marketing idea by five students within Dr. Anne-Marie Nicol’s Simon Fraser University Faculty of Health Sciences class. One of the students, Emily Li is working with REM this fall as campaign coordinator. Read SFU’s story on Uncovering The Bark Side of Radon.
