Learn More: Our History

A leader in cancer prevention and risk assessment, Fox Chase Cancer Center established one of the first risk programs in the country in 1991 for individuals with a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer. This program served as a model for others around the country and led to risk assessment services at Fox Chase for other types of cancers including prostate, GI and lung cancers as well as melanoma.
