The cancer education modules will help you support the people in your community to understand the ways they can prevent cancer, decrease their cancer risk, and, if they are diagnosed with cancer, to live well along their cancer journey.
Once you get to the Distance Learning Network website, you must create an account in order to get started - this is a one-time registration. Once you created your account, you can self-enroll into the Cancer Education - Continuing Education modules.
