March 1, 2010

The National Cancer Institute reports that as many as 80% of all cancers are due to identified factors and are potentially preventable. What are some ways you can reduce your risk?

Catholic Health will be sponsoring a free women’s health education program, “Common Cancers in Women” on March 24 at 5:30 p.m. at the Williamsville Diagnostic Center located at 400 International Drive, Williamsville. Ginny Lyons, RN, women’s health specialist, will present information on different types of cancer, early detection, and treatment.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, affecting all racial groups, followed by and colon and rectal cancer. However, small changes in everyday lifestyle behaviors, regular screenings, and routine check-ups may help reduce your risk. Learn how to increase your chances of early detection of cancer, when treatment is more likely to be successful.

Registration is required and space is limited. For more information, or to register, for “Common Cancers in Women,” call Catholic Health’s HealthConnection at (716) 706-2112.
