APTR-CDC Sponsored AJPM Supplement
Opportunities for Cancer Prevention During Midlife
The life experiences of midlife adults can place them at increased risk for cancer, especially for breast, colon, and lung cancers, as well as other leading chronic conditions, which are increasingly being recognized as linked to behaviors. AJPM's latest supplement, guest edited by Sarah Gehler, Dawn Holman, Mary C. White, Jane Henley, Lucy Pepkins and Donatus U. Ekwueme, highlights the importance of recognizing unique risk factors experienced by adults in midlife, or those between ages 45 and 64 years.
This supplement was supported by funds from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Cancer Prevention and Control through the CDC and the APTR Cooperative Agreement.
