Webinar: Why Everyday Health Decisions are Important in Reducing Cancer Risks for Firefighters
May 13, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDTFree
Improving firefighter health and lessening the risks for critical illness such as cancer takes a multi-pronged approach. While operational considerations such as decon are necessary, research increasingly suggests that personal modifiable risk factors, such as nutrition, fitness, tobacco use, and sleep, are key predictors of injury, loss, and developing cancer. Join the NVFC and Sara Jahnke, PhD, Director of the Center for Fire, Rescue, and EMS Health Research for a discussion current research of these modifiable risk factors and why preventing cancer requires not only individual, but system level changes.
