Stanford Health Library

The Health Library at Stanford is an established library that provides medical information to help people make informed decisions about their health and health care. The Stanford Cancer Center houses a specialized branch of the library that offers a wide range of cancer resources. Located in the first floor atrium, this branch—and the services of its trained staff—are free and open to the public. The library also sponsors a community lecture series addressing a range of cancer-related topics. For more information about the Stanford Health Library and its services, please visit them online.

Prevention and Screening

The early detection of cancer provides the greatest opportunity for cure. To this end, the SCC offers a number of cancer screening and prevention programs. Each spring the center provides free skin cancer screening through a number of community-based locations. The Center also sponsors a free smoking cessation program, which includes self-help materials, an advisory consultation and follow-up support.

Take the time to care for yourself and those who need you. Learn about colorectal, breast and cervical early detection cancer screening tests. The Cancer Detection Programs: Every Woman Counts provides low-income women access to 2 tests every woman should be aware of

Physician Liaison Program

The Physician Liaison Program serves as a communication link between the SCC and community physicians, medical groups and health plans. In addition to facilitating patient referrals to the SCC, the office organizes clinical presentations and other educational outreach to grand rounds, special interest groups, tumor boards and other professional venues throughout Northern California.
