Do you have questions about how to reduce your risk of getting cancer risk or to improve your outcomes during treatment? The South East Regional Cancer Program invites you to a Twitter chat on Thursday January 14, 2016 at 4 p.m.
Join us on Twitter by using the hashtag #CancerCareSE to participate in our cancer prevention twitter chat with Dr. Hugh Langley. Learn about the effects of smoking and drinking, a healthy diet and physical activity, as well as cancer screening options you should consider.
“Cancer prevention strategies to lessen smoking, improve diet and activity levels, reduce obesity and limit alcohol consumption offer everyone the opportunity to reduce their risk of cancer,” says Dr. Langley. “It is possible to reduce cancer deaths by as much as 30% in our region but it requires major lifestyle changes that improve health and wellness for the whole community. Understanding your risks and how they can affect cancer outcomes is the first step toward a healthy lifestyle.”
Dr. Langley has been a Kingston-area family physician for 29 years and is currently the primary care lead for the South East Regional Cancer Program and an adjunct assistant professor at Queen’s University. Cancer prevention and screening have been the focus of his work for the past 12 years and he is an active advocate for healthy lifestyles.
