Cancer is the second leading cause of death in New York State, but it doesn’t have to be!
Cancer screenings can find cancers early when they may be easier to treat, or some cancers, before they start. Getting regular screenings is essential to finding cancers early and taking control of your health.
But what screenings are recommended for you? Your loved ones? Where can you get screenings in your community? And will your insurance cover them? Visit www.cancerscreenweek.org for cancer screening guidelines and cancer screening resources.
December 4th – 8th is National Cancer Screen Week
CPiA proudly joins the American Cancer Society in this call to action to promote cancer screenings and reduce barriers to screenings and preventive care.
A Cancer Screening Paid Time Off Benefit Can Save Lives.
A Cancer Screening Paid Time Off (PTO) Benefit is similar to sick, vacation, or personal leave time. PTO for cancer screenings can help individuals be up to date with their recommended screenings for cancers such as breast, cervical, and colorectal. Finding cancer early can save lives. Do you have Paid Time Off for Cancer Screenings in your workplace? CPiA can help!
