Quest Diagnostics Sponsors American Cancer Society's Choose You® Movement
Date:5/9/2011

MADISON, N.J., May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Quest Diagnostics, the world's leading provider of diagnostic testing, information and services (NYSE: DGX), today announced its national sponsorship of Choose You®, the American Cancer Society's movement that inspires women to stay well by putting their health first and making healthy lifestyle choices to help prevent cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 3 American women will get cancer in her lifetime, but there are steps women can take today to help change that statistic. More than half of cancer deaths could be prevented with healthy lifestyle choices, like maintaining a healthy weight through diet and regular exercise, avoiding tobacco products and getting regular cancer screening tests.

"We look forward to working with Quest Diagnostics as a national sponsor of the Choose You 'get regular health checks' commitment," said Terry Music, chief mission delivery officer for the American Cancer Society. "Their support will go a long way in helping women put their health first."

As part of the movement, women are encouraged to sign a Choose You Commitment, an online pledge to reach a specific, individual health goal. At ChooseYou.com, women can choose from five different health categories: eat right; get active; get regular health checks; protect your skin; and quit smoking. Quest Diagnostics is the national sponsor of the Choose You effort to remind women to 'get regular health checks.'

"Quest Diagnostics is proud to be a national sponsor of this important public health initiative," said Laure Park, Vice President, Corporate Communications and Investor Relations and the company's Corporate Citizenship Officer. "We hope that many will join us in supporting the Choose You movement, in recognizing women everywhere who care for their families, and in reminding them to also care for themselves."
