On July 16 and throughout the year Cancer Prevention and Control appreciates your partnership! Together, we represent the WVU Cancer Institute throughout the state and our collaboration connects West Virginians with life-saving cancer screening.
Last year’s CPC Thank-a-Thon reached over 300 partners. This year, CPC plans to reach out to over 500 partners from around the state to extend appreciation and invite new opportunities.

It never gets dark in a hospital room, even in the middle of the night. The constant illumination can do more than just annoy patients. According to a study by Randy Nelson and Courtney DeVries—researchers in the WVU School of Medicine—it may even depress them. Nelson’s and DeVries’ work may suggest new hospital lighting schemes that bolster patients’ moods and promote healing.
WVU Professor Emeritus Alan M. Ducatman is among the presenters for an upcoming Public Health Grand Rounds session, "PFAS and Protecting Your Health,” hosted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
