Prevention

While the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara is primarily a treatment center, we are also strong advocates of practices that may reduce the incidence of cancer. Cancer prevention is accomplished by reducing risk factors, by making healthy choices, and by participating in recommended screenings. The Cancer Center offers a variety of cancer prevention programs in our community throughout the year.
