LAS VEGAS- The Nevada Cancer Institute is being recognized for its efforts to reduce the risk of cancer among its employees and their families.
The CEO Roundtable on Cancer awarded NVCI its CEO Cancer Gold Standard accreditation. The accreditation means NVCI discourages tobacco use, encourages exercise, provides access to health care and encourages cancer screenings among employees.
"We have a responsibility to show the citizens of Nevada that we live what we preach about reducing the risk of cancer," said Nevada Cancer Institute Director and CEO John Ruckdeschel. "Taking care of our employees and their families through promoting a healthy lifestyle and reducing the chance of cancer remains our commitment."
