Ignite the Cancer Conversation


Logo Header

Who doesn’t want to end cancer? Learn what YOU, a survivor, an advocate, a medical professional, a community leader, a concerned citizen, can do today to end it once and for all. This isn’t about your money. It’s about your mind. 

On April 20,  2017 we ignited the cancer conversation once again. This year, based on your feedback, we brought you a deeper look into the environment and how it can impact your risk of cancer. More specifically, we asked three, expert speakers to touch on the environment in Iowa and what you can do to protect your family.

Attendees Learned about:

  • Iowan’s drinking water, its source, the cancer risks, and what you’ll need to know to protect  your health
  • Upstream prevention strategies that deal with pesticides in Iowa’s urban areas and agriculture
  • Prevalence of elevated levels of radon in Iowa and what you can do
