Health and Well-Being Program

Let Us Teach You How to Detect Cancer Early

Active patients get better healthcare. Bring our wellness program to your workplace for training that goes beyond prevention. We don’t know who will get cancer, but we do know that 40% of us will be diagnosed. 

Patient awareness and action is key and timing is everything. You can be 10X more likely to survive cancer if you catch it early. We will teach your team how.

There are two paths to early detection, screenings for the six types we can screen for, and for the remaining 95+ types, 3 Steps Detect is vital.

While the most important benefit is lives saved and suffering minimized, detecting cancer early reduces healthcare costs for your employees and for your organization.

The Worst Cancer Diagnosis Is a Late One

The 5 Most Common Cancers Diagnosed Annually in the U.S.

SOURCE: American Cancer Society 5-year SEER data (based on people diagnosed
between 2010-2016)

FACT: Experts predict that in less than 10 years, cancer will surpass heart disease as the #1 cause of death in the United States each year. There are many different reasons for cancer deaths, but one of the most important factors is the stage of cancer when it was first detected.

There are more than 100 types of cancer and available screenings for only six types. For the rest, learning 3 Steps Detect is vital. 

Dr. Peter Deckers, dean emeritus at the University of Connecticut’s School of Medicine and medical advisor to DetecTogether, explains how using 3 Steps Detect can help detect cancer early, when it is more treatable.

The Clinical and Economic Benefits of Early Detection

Our team published a scholarly paper in the American University Washington College of Law Health Law & Policy Brief about the clinical and economic benefits of Early Detection and Diagnosis, which we invite you to read.

The COVID-19 Diagnosis Gap

The pandemic created a pressing need for 3 Steps Detect as people have delayed cancer screenings and routine appointments and cancer is being diagnosed later, at more advanced stages, when it’s more difficult to treat and outcomes are less positive. Treating later stage cancers is also extremely costly, to individuals and their organizations.
