January is National Radon Action Month
Jan 28 all-day
online


The Asheville-Buncombe Air Quality Agency is encouraging residents to get their homes tested for Radon during National Radon Action Month.

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. after smoking and the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is invisible, odorless, and tasteless.  Radon is released harmlessly from the ground into outdoor air, but it can accumulate and reach harmful levels when trapped in homes and buildings.

Testing is the only way to know if a home has an elevated level of radon. EPA and the U.S. Surgeon General recommend taking action to fix your home if the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) of air or more. Most homes can be fixed for about the same cost as other common home repairs.  Taking action to reduce your exposure to radon is a long-term investment in your families’ health and your home.

The NC Radon Program is offering discounted short-term radon test kits for residents of North Carolina. Other short-term radon test kits can also be purchased online for as little as $18 and are available at most home improvement and hardware stores. Additional information can be found at epa.gov/radon.

“Well Being is a Skill” – A Lecture Presented by Richard Davidson
Feb 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Lipinsky Auditorium

In this talk, happening in person at 7 p.m. in Lipinsky Auditorium, world-renowned neuroscientist and psychologist Richard Davidson will draw from scientific evidence that suggests that we can change our brains by cultivating certain habits of mind. By transforming the mind, these mental training strategies can improve the well-being of children and parents, students and teachers, citizens and communities.

On Friday, 2/11 at 9 AM, Davidson will host an additional Master Class in the Highsmith Student Union, Blue Ridge Room. He will discuss how scientific investigation into the practices of meditation and mindfulness enhances our potential for well-being.
