The best thing anyone can do to reduce their cancer risk is to be proactive rather than reactive.

Unfortunately, cancer touches many of our lives in one way or another at some point. It can be difficult and scary to talk about, but prevention and education are essential for minimizing and even eliminating cancer’s impact. Early screening, preventative nutrition, and lifestyle choices can all help protect you and your loved ones from the worst outcomes associated with cancer.

In an upcoming installment of the Breakfast Briefs webinar series, presented by Dartmouth Health, the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce will present "A Cancer Conversation: Prevention and Treatment," featuring Simon Khagi, MD, medical director for Dartmouth Cancer Center in Nashua, Manchester and Concord. He’ll be joined by registered dietitian Andrea Hebert, MS, RD, LD, CDE, for a discussion on trends in cancer research, steps you can take to reduce cancer risk, environmental and hereditary factors that can increase risk, living with cancer, and more.

“The best thing anyone can do to reduce their cancer risk is to be proactive rather than reactive,” Khagi said. “This webinar will address the best steps people can take in daily life to protect themselves against cancer, from the right foods to eat to the questions you should be asking your primary care provider. I look forward to this opportunity to answer people’s questions and empower them with knowledge to keep themselves and their families healthy.”

"A Cancer Conversation: Prevention and Treatment" will be held on Tuesday, July 26, at 7:30 am. Registration is required and free of charge. To register, visit https://members.nashuachamber.com/events/details/breakfast-briefs-dartmouth-health-06-22-2022-5571.
