In 2010 LIVESTRONG’s Community Program grant process evolved into the Community Impact Project (CIP). This shift resulted in providing the largest support they had ever offered through their Community Program in one calendar year.  The CIP is a novel approach encouraging community organizations, hospitals, and cancer centers to implement evidence-based survivorship programs in a way that engages community members and organizations through a national voting process.

In support of National Survivorship Day, the June cyber-seminar will highlight this innovative model that LIVESTRONG developed to scale-up one of their 2010 Community Impact Project survivorship programs, SuperSibs! This seminar will provide an overview of the CIP, describe the challenges and benefits SuperSibs! encountered as they scaled-up their program, and discuss two of the selected sites adapting and implementing SuperSibs! in their communities through the CIP.  

Join us as we explore an exciting new model for program dissemination!

Learning Objectives

At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the unique dissemination approach of the LIVESTRONG Community Impact Project and their partnership with the SuperSibs! program.
