Inaugurated in October 2002 and located at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, the Stroll Family Cancer Prevention Centre is dedicated to providing specialized information and resources to the public while advancing clinical efforts in the field of cancer prevention. With affiliated experts in major medical and surgical disciplines, the Centre offers the public practical medical, lifestyle, dietary and screening advice in the form of small-group sessions, public lectures, private consultations and one-on-one genetic counselling and risk assessment services. The anticipated expansion of this clinical service would see a similar integrated approach to the delivery of screening, lifestyle, cancer genetics and prevention advice at the McGill University Hospital Centres.
The Centre serves as an ideal setting to bridge the clinical and laboratory work carried out by the McGill programs in Cancer Genetics and Cancer Prevention.
