Community Cancer Champions

on Thursday 16th Nov, 2017 at 1:00pm

Do you have a job that involves working with the public or are you a community member? Can you help us raise awareness of cancer screening programmes in your local community?

Local Public Health departments and CCGs are working with Cancer Research UK to provide a free training programme to create local Community Cancer Champions across Coventry and Warwickshire. 

The training is targeted at people who are not health professionals and will include information on:

  • what cancer is
  • how it can be detected early
  • key messages to promote cancer screening programmes (breast, bowel and cervical) in the local community

This training is part of a work programme to implement the national cancer strategy across Coventry and Warwickshire. The strategy aims to help prevent cancer, promote early diagnosis, and to help people live well after they have been treated for cancer.
