Cancer Education for Teens
CET is a cancer education and risk reduction program offered, free of charge, to high school health education classes. Cancer Pathways has been offering this program since 2005 and has served more than 65,000 students. The goal of CET is to educate and empower students to create a healthy lifestyle and feel more confident about talking to, and supporting, those with cancer. Cancer Education for Teens makes a difficult subject part of an everyday discussion.
CET is a 45-50 minute presentation. The program is available in two formats: as an in-person presentation given by one of our health educators OR as an e-learning program on our website.
The CET curriculum provides important cancer education for teens that they need and want to know. The program includes a completed lesson plan, teacher guide, additional activities, and aligns with National Health Learning Standards. Some of the topics include understanding what cancer is and who gets it, cancers that impact teenagers, risk factors for cancer, healthy living and risk reduction, the importance of nutrition and exercise, and how to more effectively communicate with those you care about.
