NCC Launches CELL Series
01 January, 2024
Our members asked and we listened. Responses from NCC’s annual member survey revealed a desire for more learning opportunities, including short lunch & learn sessions. We’re meeting this demand with the new CELL Series, short for Cancer Education Lunch & Learn.
The CELL Series will feature eight sessions throughout the year on topics ranging from prevention and early detection to survivorship and cross-cutting issues affecting cancer control. Each will be 45 minutes long and feature a brief presentation with time for questions—all scheduled at noon to take advantage of the lunch hour.
If you can’t make the live session, we’ll also record the CELL Series so anyone can watch the replays on demand.
The CELL Series will not offer continuing education credits. The sessions are designed to introduce new resources or new topics, or take a closer look at a small area of cancer control.
The last three CELL Series sessions of the year we’ve designated as Cancer Plan prep sessions. These allow members to learn more about cross-cutting issues affecting cancer control that should be considered as we develop the next five-year cancer plan. Work on that begins this fall and continues into 2025. Of course, you don’t have to work on the cancer plan to attend these sessions.
We’re still building the CELL Series calendar and confirming speakers, but we have already mapped out our eight topics for the year and opened registration for a few.
Here are this year’s CELL Series sessions:
- February 7: Using Nevada's Lung Screening Toolkit
- February 28: HPV-Related Cancer Prevention for Dental Professionals - Nevada HPV Toolkit
- March: Biomarker Testing
- May: The Science of Sunscreen
- June 5: Navigating Intimacy After Cancer
- September: What Affects Cancer Outcomes? – A Cancer Plan Prep Session
- October: Cancer & The Environment – A Cancer Plan Prep Session
- November: Racism as a Public Health Issue – A Cancer Plan Prep Session
