American Cancer Society Announces 'Choose You'

by: cancercompass

The American Cancer Society officially announced its 'Choose You' movement on Tuesday, a campaign which encourages women to make their health a top priority.

According to, "The Choose You Movement shines a light on a hidden issue: that while one in three American women will get cancer in her lifetime, about 50% of cancer deaths could be prevented if more emphasis were placed on early detection and healthier lifestyles including maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise and avoiding tobacco."

May 12th is National Choose You Day which asks companies across the U.S. to allow 30 minutes for their employees (both male and female) to take steps toward their health. A Choose You Workplace Toolkit contains ideas and activities, and is available for download.
