    I work with an organization whose mission is to cut cancer in half in one generation.

    This year, we?ve been working with the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the International Union Against Cancer and the Campaign to Control Cancer on a public engagement project, called Global Community Conversations about Cancer. We have conducted a large number of community conversations (340 internationally) that have created an outpouring of considerable public emotion about cancer control, particularly around a desire for more emphasis to be given by health care organizations and governments to prevention and screening.

    I would like to ask what the panel would recommend as ?simple steps? all people could take to be preventive and to screen for early detection of cancers. What do you advise any new health plan in the U.S. to do about encouraging prevention and screening ? what approaches will not be too costly to cover in the short-run and ultimately lead to substantial cost savings in the future?
