Yorkshire Cancer Research is funding a new, exciting community health programme called ‘Wise Up To Cancer’. The programme aims to lower cancer risk by promoting healthy lifestyles, encouraging people to take part in their cancer screening and look out for cancer signs and symptoms.
We have announced the appointment of Dr Kathryn Scott as our new Chief Executive.
Dr Scott joined the charity in 2008 and previously held the position of Director of Research and Innovation. She succeeds Charles Rowett, who had led the organisation since June 2012.
Dr Scott was integral to formulating the charity’s ambitious 10-year strategy launched in 2015, which aims to invest £100m across Yorkshire so by 2025 at least 2,000 more people in the region survive cancer every year.
