The annual Great American Smoke Out (GASO) awareness day is an opportunity to commit to a smoke- and tobacco-free life – not just for a day, but year-round. TGH has partnered with the American Cancer Society to help our community commit to quit use of tobacco products (tobacco products can include cigarettes, snuff, dip, and vaping). We know quitting is hard, so we have laid out resources to help you commit to quit and offer the support you need to help you succeed.

Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death. But it doesn't have to be this way. Through screening, it is one of the most preventable diseases.
TGH offers a free screening test, called the FIT test, to community members who meet the test requirements. The FIT test detects occult (hidden) blood in the stool. This detection is important because it can be a sign of precancerous polyps or colon cancer. For more information, please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HPV, or human papillomavirus, is a common virus that can cause cancers later in life. You can protect your child from these cancers with an HPV vaccine at age 11–12 years. TGH is committed to creating awareness and improving the vaccination rates for children in our community. For more information about HPV and how to protect against the cancers associated with it.
