The third annual Cure4Kids World Cancer Day Webcast was held February 3, 2012. This webcast explored communication strategies for disease prevention and included presentations by Aubrey Van Kirk Villalobos, St. Jude International Outreach; Larry Cohen, founder and executive director, Prevention Institute; Andrew Cheyne, media researcher, Berkeley Media Studies Group; and Karen Gutierrez, director, Global Dialogue for Effective Stop Smoking Campaigns.
The aim of this three-day conference was to improve health and science education in classrooms and communities around the world. The conference brought together leading educators, innovators, and pioneers in a multidisciplinary forum to promote improvements and innovations in health and science education. The first day was a research forum focusing on methodologies for evaluating educational programs. The second day included panels and keynote speakers engaging with the audience, both onsite and online, to discuss local and global successes and challenges in education and health. The third day had hands-on workshops and group discussions for teacher training, support, and collaboration as well as a poster session by teachers, for teachers.
Everyone knows someone touched by cancer. Are you as informed as you could be about new advances in research and medicine and ways to reduce your risk of getting cancer? Do you want some updated information to use in your classroom?
These topics and more were the focus of the Cure4Kids for Kids Professional Development Conference for Educators in 2010. World-renowned scientific and medical experts explained about new microscopy techniques, cancer, secondhand smoke, nutrition, genetics, and how to help patients return to school and life. All lectures were geared toward school teachers.
