Featuring Julia Thorsness,
State of Alaska, Department of Public Health
Cancer impacts all members of our community in some way. Our lifetime risk of having cancer is 1 in3 for women and 1 in 2 for men.
This presentation will discuss the business case for cancer prevention and screening and how our business community can be a part of the solution. Topics will include the Mapping Project and how this tool can be a resource for businesses, how the mapping project has helped us focus on target areas and programs available to employers and employees who struggle to provide health insurance.
Julia facilitates the State of Alaska Comprehensive Cancer Partnership funded by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
