As part of ongoing Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) technical assistance efforts, the GW Cancer Center develops social media toolkits for cancer awareness months to help CCC programs, coalitions and other stakeholders strengthen their communication efforts. The toolkits each contain evidence-informed communication strategies, pre-written Tweets and Facebook posts, as well as other social media and cancer awareness-related tools and resources. Check out our new catalog highlighting all of our available social media toolkits.

Summer is a great time to take advantage of the training and education opportunities available from the GW Cancer Center's Online Academy . We offer a number of courses intended to help health care and public health professionals advance patient-centered care and evidence-based public health practice. These no-cost trainings can be completed at your own pace and on your schedule. For more information, check out http://bit.ly/GWCCOnlineAcademy .

New Patient and Provider Resources
The GW Cancer Center is pleased to announce the release of several new patient and provider resources as part of its Together, Equitable, Accessible, Meaningful (TEAM) education program. As part of the TEAM program, we've created several resources for patients and providers that can help patients talk with members of their health care team and remind providers about best practices for culturally affirming care.

The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) Survey and parent/community observations reflect increasing rates of tobacco use among students in public schools within Cherokee Nation. As a result, the Cherokee Nation Comprehensive Cancer Control Program established a task force comprised of public health representatives with a vested interest in—and established relationships with—the schools in the targeted community of the Cherokee Nation Tribal Jurisdictional Service Area (TJSA). The task force communicated the problem and the PSE solution to school principals/superintendents and asked for their help in implementation. Initially, six schools in the Cherokee Nation TJSA were targeted in small groups, efforts were later expanded aim to establish tobacco-free policies in all schools within the TJSA .
