Cancer Prevention & Control
New cancer cases can be reduced, and many cancer deaths can be prevented. Reduce your cancer risk by living a healthy lifestyle. Positive lifestyle changes include avoiding tobacco use, increasing your physical activity, avoiding obesity, minimizing excessive sun exposure, and improving your daily nutrition.
Preventive measures and cancer screening and can lower the high rates of cancer and cancer deaths. Screenings for cervical, breast, and colorectal cancers decrease death rates from these diseases. By finding signs of cancer early, we often can treat precancerous conditions before they become life threatening.

Partners In Wellness is a free health screening program open to all Louisiana citizens who do not receive routine health screenings for prostate, colorectal, breast, and cervical cancer, as well as cardiovascular diseases.
