Every year, thousands of people in Greater Manchester are diagnosed with cancer. We know that: Cancer awareness saves lives: Early detection saves lives: Cancer screening saves lives: Why not top up your knowledge and confidence and help yourself, your family members, community leaders and staff?
This 90 mins session aims to increase people’s understanding of the importance of seeking out factual evidence-based information regarding cancer. The session highlights some of the most popular myths surrounding cancer and replaces them with facts. We will equip people the ‘tools’ to share correct information with others and signpost on to reliable research-based websites for anyone wanting additional information on cancer.
By the end of the session participants will:
• Have a greater understanding of common Facts & Myths surrounding Cancer
• Have knowledge of where to find credible sources of information to pass on to others
• Know how to sign-up to become a Greater Manchester Cancer Champion
• Make a 'Plan' to share learning with others and 'turn learning into practice'
