Advocating prevention

Tuesday October 03, 2000

Councilmember Kriss Worthington walked with other breast cancer prevention advocates from Old City Hall to the City Clerk’s office Monday to place a resolution on cancer prevention on the Oct. 10 City Council agenda. Claiming that current breast cancer programs target early detection, not prevention, advocates want the city to “reduce or eliminate its toxic practices by enacting changes such s banning the use of PVC plastic in new construction an working with public facilities and institutions to switch to safer alternative products and methods.”
