By answering a few questions about what you eat and how much you move, in 5 minutes you’ll know what you’re doing well and in what areas you can still do better. Knowing your strengths and areas for improvement is the first important step toward making life-changing improvements in your health habits.

But just knowing where you are isn’t enough. You’ll want to take action now, but where to start? Once you complete the assessment, we’ll point you to specific actions you can take and tools you can use to move closer to following all the AICR cancer prevention recommendations. You can choose from a trying a new recipe to joining our 12-week New American Plate Challenge program. The important thing is to find something that will work for you now.

Encourage your family and friends to take the Cancer Health Check so you can find an action for everyone to work on together. It may be taking a walk together every day, or cutting back on sugar sweetened drinks. Remember – your choices add up to lower cancer risk!
