Today, the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) announced that it reached a new milestone: more than 2 million cancer prevention services have been provided to Texans in all 254 counties of the state.
“This is a momentous occasion in CPRIT’s history and it demonstrates how Texas leads the nation in the fight against cancer,” said Wayne Roberts, CPRIT’s CEO. “Our innovative and proven cancer prevention strategies are saving or extending the lives of thousands of Texans who ordinarily might not have access to screenings and diagnostics. The greatest opportunity to reduce the burden of cancer is by reducing its incidence – preventing it altogether.”
The Bridge Breast Network is part of this new milestone in CPRIT’s History. View patient videos for more information.
