Cox HealthSense

The article "Early warning of problem can spur healthy changes," which appeared on page 23 of the May 3-9, 1999, Health Care section, contained incorrect information.

The article should have read as follows: Although lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in America, an estimated 4 percent of cancers are oral cancer caused by tobacco use, according to Miriam Clark, director of Cox HealthSense.

She added that prostate cancer, a disease which has always been on the back burner, has come to the forefront as the leading cancer diagnosed in American men.

Additionally, information regarding Cox's health emphasis for May was incorrect. Cox information and education programs in May will focus on osteoporosis and arthritis, but its community health screenings will be for stroke.
