Our goal is to reduce the number of people diagnosed with cancer through prevention and increase survival through early detection. Research shows that screening for cancers such as cervical, colorectal and breast cancers as recommended helps prevent these diseases by finding precancerous lesions so they can be treated before they become more serious. And, early detection may allow you to begin treatment to start before you have symptoms, which can greatly improve treatment outcomes and survival rates.
Additionally, your cancer risk can be lowered by making healthy lifestyle choices such as limiting or avoiding tobacco and alcohol, sun protection, good nutrition and by maintaining your physical activity.
Our Prevention and Early Detection Program provides comprehensive cancer screenings, testing, assessments and follow-up to help determine a person’s risk for cancer, as well as a wide array of wellness programs to help you with the risk factors within your control.
