Louisiana Cancer Prevention & Control Programs Communications Manager
We’re changing things up around here, which includes giving you summaries of important cancer news, as well as what we hope is a simpler, more fun take on some of that news. You’ll also soon see a new website and an approach that we hope will help people really start understanding cancer for the disease it is – a deadly one, but one we can actually prevent a lot of the time.
