15-40 Connection 3 Steps Detect - Massachusetts Vocational/Technical High Schools: Saving lives through early cancer detection 2018-2019

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. Our partnership with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine has allowed for the incorporation of NNLM/MedLine Plus resources into our 3 Steps Detect education, providing reliable and up-to-date information to further empower patients with guidance regarding doctor/patient relationships, symptoms, confidentiality and patient's rights. Our Outreach and Education mission is to establish program partnerships with new schools and develop sustainable 3 Steps Detect programs.
