Message From the Administrator

Greetings and welcome to the Winter 2007 edition of “Together We Can,” the newsletter of the Joan Karnell Cancer Center at Pennsylvania Hospital. In this issue, we focus on cancer prevention and early detection.

Cancer prevention is one of the core missions of the Cancer Center, along with diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. To further this mission, we offer cancer screenings and community education programs throughout the year. Our physicians and staff participate in health fairs, community lectures, and advocacy programs in the cancer community.

This issue of the newsletter contains information on cancer screenings and early detection for all ages. There are many resources on the Internet that provide information on cancer screening and early detection.

The American Cancer Society web site provides resources and information on many different types of cancer risk.

The Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention offers a risk calculator for different types of cancer.

The Centers for Disease Control is a leader in nationwide cancer prevention and control, working with national organizations, state health agencies and other key groups to develop, implement, and promote effective cancer prevention and control practices.

The Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation is a national, nonprofit health foundation whose mission is the prevention and early detection of cancer through scientific research and education. The Foundation focuses its energies and resources on those cancers – including lung, breast, prostate, colorectal, cervical, skin, oral and testicular – that can be prevented through lifestyle changes or detection and treatment in their early stages.

We hope that you will be inspired to seek more information on cancer prevention and early detection. Together, we can make a difference in preventing and decreasing the risk of cancer.
