HPV causes cancer. Help protect your kids.
The Canadian Cancer Society’s Health Promotion Project, launched in 2012, is an on-demand cancer information service. Community groups, businesses, schools, churches and everyone in between can easily host a cancer information seminar or an information booth at no cost.
Health Promotion Goal:
To improve access to, and the understanding of, cancer related information for people lining in Newfoundland and Labrador through educational programs delivered by trained volunteers throughout the province.
Health Promotion Outcomes:
Through the delivery of this project, we aim to…
…improve access to up-to-date information on cancer and cancer-related services to all residents of Newfoundland and Labrador.
…increase availability to cancer-related information materials.
…empower Newfoundlanders and Labradoreans to ask questions and receive information regarding healthy living, cancer prevention, early detection and screening, cancer services and supports in their region, province, and country.
…train volunteers in strategic locations throughout the province to deliver presentations to the public that would increase awareness on cancer prevention.
…establish constructive working partnerships between CCS-NL, government, regional health authorities and individual health care providers in working towards common goals.
…provide incremental service for the Department of Health and Community Services in achieving objectives as outlined in policy and strategic documents such as the 2008-2011 DOHCS Strategic Plan, the Cameron Inquiry Recommendations, and the Provincial Cancer Control Policy Framework.
Book a Cancer Presentation or Information Booth:
The Canadian Cancer Society is home to a wealth of cancer-related information including categories such as early detection and prevention, understanding a diagnosis, how to care for a loved one who has been diagnosed with cancer, and general healthy living. This information is made available to groups in the form of customizable PowerPoint presentations that can be delivered by trained volunteers and/or CCS staff.
THESE PRESENTATIONS ARE COMPLETELY FREE!!!!
The list of topics that you can choose from is growing every day. Below are a few examples of some of the sessions that we offer:
Each presentation is custom built to fit your needs, interests, and audience. We can mix and match these topics and the presentation can be anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours.
Our staff and volunteers meet with elected officials from local, provincial and national governments to persuade them to make the fight against cancer one of their top priorities.
