ACS Presents Five Excellence Awards

The awards honored Quest Diagnostics, Walmart, and three others for promoting healthy lifestyles and reducing cancer risks among their employees.

The American Cancer Society has presented Awards of Excellence, Excellence in Cancer Control, Excellence in Employee Engagement, Excellence in Employee Giving, and Excellence in Tobacco Control – part of the annual American Cancer Society Corporate Impact Awards -- to five corporate partners.

"Research shows that employers have a unique opportunity to make a difference in today's workforce through health promotion and disease prevention initiatives," says John R. Seffrin, Ph.D., chief executive officer of ACS. "As the society celebrates 100 years of helping people get well and stay well, fighting back, and finding cures for cancer, we are proud to recognize companies who emphasize the importance of cancer prevention, are working to reduce cancer risk among their workforce, and are helping the Society fight one of the greatest economic burdens of all leading causes of death worldwide."
