About Us:

Through the Cancer Prevention in Action program, the Oneida County Health Department provides cancer prevention education, resources, practices and policies to local communities within Herkimer, Madison and Oneida Counties. The Cancer Prevention in Action program works to reduce the risk and burden of cancer. We work with local community sites to facilitate the adoption and implementation of sun safety practices and policies to prevent skin cancer. We promote 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. We also encourage parents of young children to speak to their child’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!
