STRANG MOUNT SINAI BETH ISRAEL SCREENING & PREVENTION
Strang Cancer Prevention Institute (SCPI) is collaborating with Mount Sinai Beth Israel of New York, which is a part of the Mount Sinai Health System.
Strang has developed, and keeps updated cancer screening and prevention guidelines for the majority of adult cancers. SCPI is working with Mount Sinai’s Institute of Primary Care to evaluate primary care physicians’ compliance with cancer screening guidelines and develop methods for increasing compliance. This research is being funded in part by the Lottie French Lewis Fund at the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.
Increasing compliance of primary care physicians, family practice physicians, gynecologists, internal medicine physicians and other health care providers has far reaching consequences for early detection of cancer and significant improvements for cure in the US.
