The Messages

When we learned about DetecTogether, a national nonprofit that goes beyond cancer prevention to teach people how to detect cancer early and get better overall healthcare, we knew we wanted to bring it to you.

Make time to learn how to get better healthcare and become an informed, empowered patient. 

Healthcare is a team sport and you are the quarterback of your care!

New Year – Healthy You
The start of a new year is a great time to learn to recognize health changes that could be symptoms of cancer. Subtle health changes can be tough to notice and too easy to ignore, but when they persist, it’s your body’s way of telling you something is wrong and needs to be checked out by a healthcare professional.

Start the new year off right by empowering yourself to detect cancer early. After 3 Steps Detect,  “Identifying and Tracking Symptoms” (7 min.) is a great place to begin.  [LINK TO COURSES]
