Conversations with Impact: Lifesaving Discussions You Should Have with the Women in Your Life
Screening can increase the chances of detecting certain cancers when they are most curable. Conversations with Impact: Lifesaving Discussions You Should Have with the Women in Your Life is a series of educational webinars that explore what screening tests are recommended and when you should have them. It is sponsored by ProMedica Wellness, ProMedica Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society.
Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of death in the United States, significantly contributing to heart attack, stroke, several types of cancers, and other chronic diseases. Because ProMedica cares about your long-term health and well-being, we encourage everyone who smokes or uses other tobacco products to kick the habit. In fact, all ProMedica campuses are tobacco-free, indoors and outdoors. ProMedica Tobacco Treatment Services offers a variety of tools and programs to help you stop using tobacco products, including individual and group counseling sessions.
