Family Reunion Kits

Family Reunions are about bringing loved ones together to celebrate family and pass along history and traditions. These events also create great opportunities to learn about a family’s health history and how it may impact the health of family members.

The kits contain information for the entire family about cancer prevention, detection and if the need arises – resources for treatment.
Each kit provides the following:

General Cancer Screenings: Many cancers that are found early can be treated and often cured. Our General Cancer Screenings fact sheet provides screening guidelines for the four most common cancers – breast, colon, prostate and lung.

Clinical Cancer Genetics: Some families are at a higher risk for cancer than others. Learn about our Clinical Cancer Genetics program and how we can help assess your family’s risk of cancer. View the FREE JamesLink® Cancer Risk Assessment Tool.

Cancer Clinical Trials: These studies offer the latest advances in treatment available. They save lives by providing valuable information in the global fight against cancer. Learn how to find out if a clinical trial would be right for you.

The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and cervical cancer:  The new HPV vaccine will prevent cervical cancer caused by HPV and along with regularly scheduled Pap tests, will help reduce death from cervical cancer.

High-Risk Breast Cancer Prevention Clinic: As central Ohio’s only comprehensive cancer risk assessment and management program, our clinic replaces fear with facts by providing women with critical information and sound advice.

Nutrition and Cancer:  Find out how you can improve your overall health and reduce your risk of getting cancer by the foods you choose.
