Past Cyber Seminars
Approximately, 3.5% of the population in the U.S. identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) with more identifying as questioning or queer (Q), yet medical providers are often not prepared to meet the needs of LGBTQ persons.
Note: unfortunately we were unable to archive the cyber seminar this month, but the slide deck from the presentation is available at the bottom of this page.
During our September cyber seminar, a team of four researchers and practitioners will discuss their experiences collaborating on the HAVOC project—an innovative smoke-free initiative designed to change social norms and reduce tobacco use among young adult Partiers (18 – 24) while building support for smoke-free venues through social media, as well as digital and outreach events.
Open data sources are increasingly used by researchers and practitioners to create pilot programs, inform public policy, guide outreach and intervention efforts, and inform secondary studies.
Making an economic case for investment in cancer prevention and control is becoming more important year after year as needs mount and resources strain. Our February R2R cyber-seminar will examine how cancer control practitioners can best leverage the expertise of partners to better understand the economics of cancer and therefore acquire and maintain needed resources.
We are delighted to leverage the expertise of two talented professionals to lead us in this discussion.
Increasing physical activity is one of American's favorite new year's resolutions. The Surgeon General's recent Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities calls on Americans to be more physically active through walking and to better support walkable communitites.
Ensuring the long- and short-term success of cancer control policies and initiatives is central to the work of comprehensive cancer coalitions. Our September NCI Research to Reality cyber-seminar is part of an occasional series which highlights how the lessons derived from implementation science informs, strengthens and sustains this essential work.
