Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. Step 1 gives researchers and public health practitioners access to descriptive cancer statistics and data in order to assess local, state, and national needs and prioritize investments in cancer control.  In their book Making Data Talk: Communicating Public Health Data to the Public, Policy Makers and the Press, Drs. David Nelson, Brad Hesse, and Bob Croyle touch on this very important topic and provide practical suggestions on how scientists and other public health practitioners can better communicate data to the public, policy makers, and the press in typical real-world situations.  This cyber-seminar will highlight important topics and examples from the book that are relevant to Step 1.
