National Cancer Prevention Month

February is National Cancer Prevention Month (NCPM), a time to focus on what we can do — as a society, in our communities, and as individuals — to take action and prevent cancer.

Leading scientists, researchers, and health professionals have sounded the alarm that toxic chemicals in our air, food, water, built environments and the products we use every day are increasingly causing cancer.

We are at a pivotal crossroads: we can and must do more to prevent cancer.


#MOVE4CancerPrevention is a healthy and fun action-building event for the whole family to enjoy and every community to join.
This annual event takes place during National Cancer Prevention Month in February.

It is a first-of-its-kind movement event encouraging everyone to take action to prevent cancer by removing cancer-causing chemicals from the places we live, learn, work and play.
