  • About

    Nationally unique, the Kentucky Cancer Program is the state mandated cancer control program established in 1982 by a visionary Kentucky General Assembly to address the high cancer rates in the Commonwealth. For over three decades, it has been a successful partnership between the Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville, and the Markey Cancer Center, University of Kentucky. KCP's mission is to reduce cancer incidence and mortality in the state through public prevention/early detection programs, support services for patients and continuing education for providers. Free public awareness programs focus on breast, cervical, colon, lung, prostate and skin cancers.----PATHFINDER is an easy-to-use online tool that links you to a variety of cancer resources including: Cancer Screening Tests/Tobacco Use; Information, Referral and Navigation; Patient Assistance; Medical Care; Survivorship and Support Groups; and National and State resources. Information is by county and updated regularly.----PLAN TO BE TOBACCO FREE was developed by the Kentucky Cancer Program to assist thousands of Kentuckians who want to stop using tobacco. Taught by a trained facilitator, this one time, one-hour educational session covers science-based resources for use outside class, correct use of cessation medications (ex. Don't chew the gum.) and a quit plan. The program is free and can be scheduled by businesses and organizations.----See Highlights & Photos for cancer of the month information and resources.
