WE’RE BACK!!! Welcome to the 42nd episode of the Living Healthy Podcast, presented by LA Fitness.
On today’s episode of the Living Healthy Podcast, we’re talking about Cancer Screening and Prevention with Dr. Rick Van Etten! Whether you’ve survived cancer, or you’ve known a loved one or friend who hasn’t, most likely cancer has impacted your life in some way. The good news is that we are starting to see and hear more and more stories of survival and with technology and medicine continuing to advance, we gain new allies in the fight every day. But it is a battle that is ongoing, and one that needs funding and education to continue. So today on the show, we’re going to be talking about what you can do to prevent cancer and why it’s so important to get screened regularly. We’re also going to touch on a very special virtual fundraising event that is coming up on October 3rd – the UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge.
