Concord Hospital Payson Center for Cancer Care’s Anticancer Lifestyle Program Presents Nationally Acclaimed Environmental Health Researcher and Advocate

Cancer is a worldwide epidemic. Scientific research consistently points to important links between cancer and chemicals we're exposed to everyday in food, air, water and consumer products. We also know that by reducing "exposure events" in daily life we can reduce the risk from a wide range of cancers.

Join nationally acclaimed environmental health researcher and advocate Ken Cook on Thursday, April 10 from 7-8:30 pm at the Concord City Auditorium, Concord, N.H. as he presents Kicking The Cancer Habit: Reprogramming Our Brains for Environmental Health. Ken is the co-founder and CEO of the Environmental Working Group, an environmental health research and advocacy organization.

This lecture aims to reconnect people with the environment by focusing on the power of human habit as an agent of cancer prevention. By adopting "habits of environmental health", we can promote behaviors that are central to cancer prevention.
