Leadership in Cancer Advocacy Training Program

December 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Young and a Survivor (YAAS)

Register for the Zoom here

Space is limited. Register for the Leadership in Cancer Advocacy Training Program by November 23.

Cancer survivorship is a complex partnership of clinicians, social workers, scientists, genetic counselors, navigators, caregivers, and patients. Each of those partners has a unique perspective and an important story to tell to advocate for improved cancer care across all levels of healthcare policy and decision making. 

Transform your experiences into tools for advocacy with the FREE Leadership in Cancer Advocacy Training Program. In this two-part multi-disciplinary workshop presented by Triage Cancer, you will learn about the various ways advocates can engage, build your own advocacy story, connect with others who share your dedication to improved cancer care, and learn about key cancer-related legal issues that impact the cancer community, and will receive resources to take back into their own communities.

Open to physicians, nurses, social workers, scientists, genetic counselors, navigators, caregivers, and patients. We also welcome faculty, fellows, post-docs, and graduate students engaged in cancer research to join us!
