April is National Cancer Control Month
According to the Cancer Causes & Control, comprehensive cancer control coalitions have been referred to as the "engines of change" and form a network that can facilitate important cancer control progress throughout our country. Every day in New Hampshire, 22 people are diagnosed with cancer and 7 people lose their lives to the disease. However, the American Institute for Cancer Research estimates that 50% of the most common cancers in the U.S. can be prevented through choices we make every day.
Strategies that encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle, promote cancer screening tests, increase access to quality cancer care, and improve the quality of life for people who survive cancer are found in the “2015-2020 New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan.”
