Don't miss the 2021 CME for Providers! Let’s Talk: Nutrition, Physical Activity and Cancer Survivorship

The American Cancer Society has developed a new CME-accredited training simulation for primary care providers. “Let’s Talk: Nutrition, Physical Activity and Cancer Survivorship gives healthcare providers a safe learning environment in which to practice effective communication techniques for discussions with cancer survivors around the sensitive topics of healthy eating, physical activity, and body weight. The training uses evidence-based motivational interviewing techniques to help providers have effective conversations with their patients about healthy lifestyle choices. For more information see the Let's Talk Communication Toolkit and Training links announcement on the Cancer Survivorship Resources page of this website.

CCCNP Health Inequities and Social Justice in Cancer

INTERACTIVE ZOOM SESSION: The Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership (CCCNP) has launched a new effort to assist CCC coalitions and programs in addressing health inequities in cancer. The initiative focuses on how coalitions can advance health equity through CCC plan update processes and CCC plan implementations and how coalitions might look at their operations through the lens of social justice and equity. View the resources that CCCNP has compiled for coalitions to address health equity.
