Welcome to Cancer Screen Week!
Cancer Screen Week is a public health initiative founded by Genentech, the American Cancer Society, Stand Up To Cancer and Optum to increase awareness of the benefits of regular cancer screening. This nationwide initiative annually takes place during the first full week of December, with a collaborative effort by insurers, employers, healthcare providers, advocates and professional organizations to drive awareness and action around screening.
Whether you are a healthcare provider, employer, insurer or community member, we all play an important role in encouraging those around us to get screened. Explore these resources to learn more about how cancer screenings can potentially save lives – and how you can share this information with others.
