May is Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month. As spring progresses into summer, there are decisions we can make to prevent cancer and, if we are diagnosed with it, to improve our outcomes.
To learn about skin cancer screenings and prevention, join Marie Borsellino from the Johns Hopkins Managing Cancer at Work program for a noontime workshop titled Well-Being: Learn How to Identify Your Cancer Screening and Prevention Strategies. It will be offered on Tuesday, May 10, in East Baltimore and on Thursday, May 12, at Homewood.
At the workshop, Borsellino will review the Managing Cancer at Work Screening and Prevention Portal, which offers customized tools and basic information on preventing various types of cancer and the screening tests. The website will help you understand if you have risk factors that make your chances of a cancer diagnosis more likely, and how you can reduce your risk.
Borsellino also will describe the oncology nurse navigator services available to faculty, staff, and their loved ones at no cost as part of their HR benefits package.
Registration is required.
