Community

OUTREACH

At Altus Cancer Center, we understand the importance of building healthy relationships with our communities and healthier lives for our patients. That is why we offer educational opportunities and resources for local schools, civic organizations, businesses and other groups — to increase awareness of risk factors, preventive approaches and treatment options, and ultimately help improve and save lives. Our experts are available to discuss a wide range of important healthcare topics. Typically programs are one hour in length and highly interactive with models, demonstrations, videos, handouts and a question and answer session. We are extremely passionate about cancer prevention, and want to disseminate information in any way that we can to the community. We have a primary focus on healing and guiding patients with cancer through their journey. However, we understand the importance of cancer prevention materials that are proactive, and raise awareness. We will work with you to customize the program to best meet your audience’s needs and welcome recommendations for additional educational opportunities.
