Community Education

Community Education connects those impacted by cancer to socioemotional support, educational opportunities, tools and resources, and research updates. This program covers a variety of topics, like cancer awareness and advocacy, HPV vaccination, tobacco and vaping prevention/cessation, workplace support, self-care, and more! We work with other organizations to serve cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, educators, health professionals, and anyone impacted by cancer.

Our Approach

  • Build collaborative communities by proactively sharing information, raising awareness, and discussing shared challenges that arise from being impacted by cancer.

  • Spotlight community resources available through our program partners that can help people navigate their experiences with cancer.
  • Empower people with information and skills that better enables them to care for themselves and their loved ones.

  • Promote lifelong learning for professionals on topics related to cancer support services, awareness, and education.

Podcast, Webinars, and Continuing Education

Our podcast (EnCOMPASSing Cancer) and webinars cover a variety of relevant topics with expert speakers, health professionals, cancer survivors (and others!) from all across the U.S.

At various times throughout the year, we provide opportunities for educators, health professionals, and social workers to earn continuing education.

Quit Tobacco Workshops

Quitting is hard work. Wherever you’re at in that process – we’re here to support you! Anyone who uses a tobacco product, including cigarettes, vapes/e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco/smokeless tobacco products, pipes/cigars, etc. is welcome to join!

Our first workshop will start Tuesday, January 10, 2023 at 4pm-5:30pm PST. Sessions will be held each Tuesday at that time and run through February 21, 2023.

Registration is required to attend.

Advocacy and Awareness

We partner with community members, schools, local organizations, and legislators to raise awareness about specific types of cancer and cancer risk factors. A few of our projects include:

  • Project C.H.A.M.P
  • Cancer Awareness Day events
  • Tobacco and Vaping Prevention

Resource Hub

Whether you’re living with cancer, caring for a loved one, or a survivor – this resource center is for you. We have compiled a comprehensive hub of support resources on: 

  • Nutrition
  • Financial/Insurance
  • Cancer Education
  • Self-care, and more!

Our Work in the South

In 2016, we expanded our program implementation to the southern United States, specifically Georgia and South Carolina. We work closely with state and local agencies to organize cancer awareness events, host cancer education workshops for teens, and facilitate capacity building for increasing HPV vaccination efforts.

Community Collaborations

We can do so much more when we work together. Learn about the work we do with other community partners and please reach out if you would like to partner with us!

Workplace Support

Talking about cancer in the workplace is tough. We work with both employers and employees to develop meaningful plans to enhance workplace support and communication for cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers.
