Patient Education through physician education

  • For the types of cancer that are susceptible to dearly detection, the “war on cancer” boils down to a battle against ignorance.
  • Monthly meetings of the Franklin County Cancer Committee and Franklin County Breast Care Team
  • These meetings are designed to provide a forum in which the Primary Care physicians and Specialty physicians can meet with other healthcare providers to share information on such topics as screening guidelines for breast, prostate, colon and lung cancer.
  • By helping the healthcare community stay abreast of the evolution of thought on these complex topics, the Friends strive to facilitate the timely dissemination of potentially life-saving information throughout the community.
