Workshops and Special Initiatives
Interactive opportunities to learn a new skill or change a behavior to improve your health
Quitting tobacco use is hard work. Wherever you’re at in the process – we’re here to support you!
We are offering tobacco cessation workshops using the American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking group program. This workshop is an 8-session, 7-week FREE curriculum that provides helpful tools, resources, and social support to help in making your quit attempt a success. Anyone (18+ years old) who uses a tobacco product (cigarette, vape/e-cig, chew/smokeless tobacco, pipes/cigars, etc.) is welcome to join!
Please visit www.cancerpathways.org/quit for current dates and times. Don’t see a date listed or one that works for you? Let us know and we’d be happy to get one schedule and send you resources in the meantime.
Girl Scouts ‘Healthy Summit’
We partner with local Girl Scouts chapters and troops to host day-long wellness summit’s focused on cancer prevention and wellness. We invite medical professionals and other guest speakers to cover topics like protecting your skin, avoiding e-cigarettes and tobacco, and maintaining a healthy weight.
Girl Scouts get to earn a badge for participating in the summit.
Community-based projects that seek to understand and address a cancer-related topic
Project C.H.A.M.P (Cultivating HPV Awareness and Mobilizing for Prevention) is our initiative created to understand the level of knowledge and awareness that teens and adults living in rural communities have about human papillomavirus (HPV) and the HPV vaccine.
To implement our survey and educational campaign, we partnered with local schools, community organizations, and hospital facilities. The data collected from the surveys allowed us to better understand what the community needs so we can provide more targeted and useful resources.
If you have any questions about this project or would like to get involved, please reach out to Lauren Bineau (firstname.lastname@example.org).
