Media Advisory: 50 per cent of cancers are preventable! What are we waiting for?
Fiona Nelson, Chair of the Toronto Cancer Prevention Coalition will discuss
recommendations to reduce or even eliminate Ontario's preventable cancers
tomorrow, Tuesday, September 16, 2003 at 11:30 a.m. in Meeting Room E, 2nd

don't have to get cancer. What are we waiting for?"

several of the working groups in the coalition, including:

Norman Giesbrecht, Senior Scientist, Centre for Addiction & Mental Health

Andrew King, Coordinator, United Steelworkers of America, National Office

George Kapelos, Chair, Department of Architectural Science, Ryerson University
