About the Study
The overall goal of the Virginia Firefighters for Lifelong Health Registry (VA-FLH) is to generate data that can inform state-wide strategic planning, allocation of resources, and strategies for cancer prevention among current and former firefighters in Virginia. The specific objectives include:
- Characterize the demographics, lifestyles, risk factors, and health status of firefighters who enroll in the VA-FLH
- Develop ways to improve health and promote cancer prevention among current and former firefighters in Virginia
- Support long-term health promotion and cancer prevention among Virginia firefighters and their families through interactive communication, networking and data collection from registry participants.
Our mission is to work with Virginia firefighter leaders to develop effective strategies to reduce the risk of cancer among firefighters in the state of Virginia.
