Cancer Prevention and Control Community Initiative
Southern Seven Health Department has joined Illinois in addressing cancer in the region. This funding will assist in educating communities on the prevention of cancer and promotion of early detection for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer. Smoking is connected to many cancers and remains the number one cause of lung cancer. The smoking rate in Illinois is 18.8% while each of the seven counties is over 25%.
