Cancer Prevention Across the Lifespan

Posted By Leslie Best, Wednesday, May 29, 2019

The Cancer Prevention Across the Lifespan project builds upon past work of the CDC Cancer Prevention and Control’s Cancer Prevention Across the Lifespan Workgroup (CPAL), which included collaboration with NACDD to conduct literature reviews and convene meetings of experts to identify factors that influence cancer risk and promising strategies to address these risks throughout the lifespan.

The first year of this new project is focused on the development of innovative resources for public health practitioners in four key focus areas: calculating and communicating cancer risk, avoiding unnecessary exposure to radiation in cases of pediatric mild traumatic brain injury, physical inactivity, and caregiver stress.

The focus on physical inactivity will be highlighted by a webinar on July 22 on innovative ways to implement the Complete Streets program in Indiana and Louisiana, which will be accompanied by case studies on the experiences in each state. A meeting of the Calculating and Communicating Cancer Risk Workgroup is scheduled for June 25, with subject matter experts presenting innovative ways for public health practitioners to communicate data and cancer trend to the general public and policymakers.
