Healthy Hospitals & Clinics Project Updates
WI Healthy Hospitals & Clinics, a project of the WI CCC Program, promotes strategies within WI hospitals and clinics that will increase healthy, active lifestyles,  Priority 2 in the WI CCC Plan 2015-2020 and is part of the  WI Cancer Council Policy Priorities. The WI Healthy Hospitals & Clinics project encompasses the Farm to Hospital Community of Practice, the WI Healthy Hospitals Community of Practice, and the  WI Healthy Hospitals & Clinics Forum.   For questions regarding this work, please contact  Michelle Moreau, Outreach Coordinator.
As a part of the Healthy Hospital Community of Practice, UW Health, a participating facility, released a series of videos highlighting the system's transition to offer healthier food and beverage options. Former UW Health CEO Jeffrey Grossman, MD, said the move toward healthy food and beverage options has been worth the effort because in a health care system, the return on investment is improved health.

You can watch the videos  here. If your organization is part of the Healthy Hospital & Clinics project and is interested in creating a CEO video, contact Michelle Moreau at

Oncologists Should Promote the Cancer-Preventing HPV Vaccine

The human papillomavirus is responsible for approximately 600,000 of the 1 million new virus related cancer cases each year. However, the HPV vaccine has potential to reduce that number drastically. Dr. Howard Bailey, Director of the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, recently called out fellow oncologists to promote the vaccine as it is an "underused intervention".
