Community Education

Community Education

Since 1921, the Columbus Cancer Clinic has been educating the public about cancer prevention, early detection, and cancer care services. The Clinic believes that knowledge can be a matter of life or death when dealing with cancer.

To increase community awareness, the Clinic takes an active role by participating in area health fairs, making public appearances on television and radio providing information and referral services. Quarterly, the Clinic distributes the Communiqué newsletter to approximately 20,000 people in the greater Columbus area. The Clinic also provides cancer education booklets and pamphlets upon request.

The Columbus Cancer Clinic provides speakers free of charge. Speakers are Clinic employees, including registered nurses, nurse practitioners, administrative staff, volunteers, board members from various professions throughout Columbus, and clients. Some of the most popular speech topics include:

  • What Every Woman Needs to Know: The Facts About Breast Cancer
  • Healthy Strategies for Women: Strategies to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
  • Transitions: Understanding Perimenopause and Menopause
  • I’ve Never Had a Mammogram, What Should I Expect?
