MOUNT MORRIS – The University of Rochester Medical Center’s Wilmot Cancer Institute and the URMC Center for Community Health are collaborating again with the Chronic Disease Prevention Committee of the Genesee Valley Health Partnership to provide free education about cancer to community members in Livingston County.

The next series runs from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesdays from Sept. 13 to Nov. 29, at the Mount Morris Village Hall, 117 Main St.

The curriculum will cover how cancer develops, treatment options and how to prevent certain types of cancer. Topics include: “Physical activity: fun exercises to keep you active 30 minutes a day,” “Healthy eating: recipes, reading labels, portion size, general nutrition” and “Questions to ask your doctor.”

Refreshments will be provided at each class.

Take-away items will also be provided to help participants stay healthy at home.
