What YOU Can Do About Cancer In Kansas



“Comprehensive Cancer Control is an integrated and coordinated approach to reducing cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality through prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation.”

-Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

 

The KDHE Cancer Prevention and Control Program seeks to reduce the morbidity and mortality from cancer through prevention of cancer when possible and routine screening when appropriate. Other areas of interest include access to quality diagnostic services and treatment including access to clinical trials, as well as survivorship issues and if necessary, compassion and care at the end of life.

The program provides breast and cervical cancer screening services through service providers located across the state. It addresses other comprehensive cancer issues through a network of partners who are interested in reducing the burden of cancer in Kansas.
