Free Online Cancer Awareness Sessions

Free Online Cancer Awareness Sessions

Do you run an online group that would benefit from a free online cancer awareness session?

Get in touch with our team and we will book you in for a free Zoom session!

The group will learn about cancer signs and symptoms, NHS cancer screening, keeping well and be reminded that early detection saves lives.

 

Our work has moved online, although there is a new ‘Big C’ (coronavirus) we do not want cancer to be forgotten. Raising awareness for key cancer messages remains important during this time.

 

We’d like to join your Zoom chat.

 

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, there has been a dramatic decrease in cancer referrals. This means a lot less people are seeking treatment for cancer signs and symptoms. It is vitally important that we raise cancer awareness and encourage members of the public to speak to their GP if they notice any changes to their body.

 

Let us briefly tell you what to expect from one of our sessions.

  • It will last around 40 minutes
  • It will be carried out on Zoom or similar video chat platforms or our team can join your session

What will we cover?
