TEAM UP Tennessee: Living Well Program

Picture from the Blount County Cancer Screening EventMonthly programs tackle important cancer topics

Living Well is the American Cancer Society Mid-South Division's series of monthly presentations designed to help your community group deliver important cancer-related information. Your TEAM UP TN team can choose which topics are appropriate for your county. These make great lunch-and-learn programs for worksites. Each session takes 30 to 45 minutes to conduct. You can modify the lesson for the amount of time you have available.

Each Living Well topic includes a program overview, event notice, sample newsletter material, fact sheet, interactive quizzes, speaker's notes, presentation, and accompanying PowerPoint presentation.
