Cancer Prevention

According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1.4 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer this year, and at least half of those new cases can be prevented or detected earlier when they are most treatable. Public health researchers in our college investigate strategies to improve screening rates and change behaviors that may cause cancer. We also have faculty who study the best practices for helping cancer patients through the health care maze during treatment. Finally, our faculty also study cancer survivors' employment choices and experiences post-recovery.
