About

Help educate the public about cancer risks, early detection methods, and prevention at local company health and benefits fairs. Educational efforts include: Tobacco control, relationship between diet and physical activity and cancer, sun safety, comprehensive health education.

Time will be spent engaging with employees and/or customers handing out cancer prevention and early detection information with a provided health fair kit, as well as speaking with them about Society programs and events including Relay, Strides, and local patient programs. If people have questions you may not be able to answer, we have our 1.800 number cards to refer them to where a trained cancer information specialist can assist them and connect the person with local resources.
