About Us:

Through the Cancer Prevention in Action Program, the Oneida County Health Department is bringing cancer prevention education, resources, practices and policies to local communities within Herkimer, Madison and Oneida Counties. Specifically, we are working with local community sites to adopt sun safety practices and policies to prevent and reduce skin cancer. Additionally, we are promoting paid time off for cancer screening policies at local worksites and non-profit organizations that will enable adults to take paid time off from work to seek recommended annual cancer screenings. Finally, we are encouraging parents of young children to speak to their children’s pediatrician about the HPV vaccine as cancer prevention. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in New York State, but it doesn’t have to be!
