15-40 Connection’s New Cancer Conversation: Saving lives through early cancer detection

15-40 Connection and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine both work to provide access to vital health information to improve quality of life and the healthcare experience. To close the gap in delayed diagnosis of cancer and provide the lifesaving advantage of early cancer detection, individuals need to be empowered through an integrated approach to health education that drives behavior change. 15-40 Connection is teaching audiences in high schools, universities, hospitals and corporations how to use personal health awareness to detect cancer earlier and improve cancer survival rates for everyone. A critical element of this education is continuity, reinforcement and access to reliable information and advice. Our partnership with NNLM will provide ongoing access to credible resources for reliable and up-to-date information to further empower patients with guidance regarding doctor/patient relationships, symptoms, confidentiality and patient’s rights.
