What's New

Summer Skin Cancer Prevention

You can have fun and prevent skin cancer, too! Men, especially those with lighter skin, are more likely than anybody else to get skin cancer, so we created a new Sun Safety Tips for Men page featuring buttons and motion graphics that you can share on social media or your own Web page or blog. We also have a new Preventing Skin Cancer podcast and new 30- and 60-second radio public service announcements. Check out all of our shareable resources on our Skin Cancer Awareness feature.

"Cheat Sheet" for Women's Cancer Screenings and Good Health

Overwhelmed by too much health advice? CDC's Dr. Lisa Richardson provides a "cheat sheet" for women's cancer screenings in this blog post.

Updated Health Insurance Estimates Released

An important new data set, the 2014 Small Area Health Insurance Estimates (SAHIE), was released to the public by the U.S. Census Bureau. The estimates are the result of a multi-year collaboration between CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control and the Census Bureau's Small Area Estimates Program.
SAHIE is the only source of single-year estimates of health insurance coverage for all counties in the United States. SAHIE data may be useful in evaluating and planning programs that work with uninsured and low-income populations. For example, the data can be used to analyze state- and county-level variation in health insurance coverage, as well as disparities in coverage by race/ethnicity, sex, age, and income levels that reflect thresholds for state and federal assistance programs. If you use SAHIE data or would like to collaborate on this work, we invite you to contact us.
