Address:

310 West 106 Street New York NY 10025 USA

Mission:

Self chec is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing the best and most comprehensive free “keeping healthy” one-to-one communicated tools to help protect you and those you care about from cancers, heart disease, diabetes and obesity; diseases that are often preventable, treatable and curable. Most people are reactive when it comes to their health; they seek out health info when they are already sick or a friend has been diagnosed. Self chec does the opposite, it nudges the public about the importance of proactive prevention, early detection and wellness care of cancers and other chronic diseases, so they can reduce their odds of getting sick in the first place.

Self Chec has the best kinds of missions: prevention. So much tragedy could be avoided if more people took the easy steps to keep cancer and disease from taking hold!

Not only does Self Chec have stand for a wonderful cause - prevention of cancer and other chronic diseases - it offers wonderful tools to the public to help realize its goal.

Joan, the founder of Self Chec, is warm and caring but also forward thinking about creating new tools and resources for people as we move deeper into the digital and virtual age. I am honored to be a part of the team that created Self Chec's inaugural hackathon to develop digital tools to help prevent breast cancer and look forward to future hackathons which will directly address other cancers and diseases.

It takes a special person and a special organization to fully embrace this kind of innovation and it deeply reflects Joan and Self Chec's dedication to make the world a healthier place by empowering people to make better choices.

Self chec provides an invaluable service by "nudging" us to take better care of ourselves and to get preventative health screenings. Given the busyness of our everyday lives, it is very easy to postpone taking care of our health and to become the Self chec logo of the ostrich with our head in the sand. Having lost loved ones to cancer, I know how important it is to be proactive when it comes to health, and Self chec's reminders help me to keep this top of mind. Self chec also prods us to remind our loved ones about the importance of health screenings. Thank you Self chec!
