Results of the GW Cancer Center's CCC Communication Mentorship Program
Sixteen co-authors collaborated on the recent publication of a manuscript entitled, "Results of the George Washington University Cancer Center’s Comprehensive Cancer Control Cancer Communication Mentorship Program and Implications for Future Practice." The Mentorship Program matched entry- to mid-level CCC professionals with health communication and/or CCC experts, with the goal of mentees improving their health communication skills and applying evidence-based knowledge to reduce the burden of cancer. Congratulations to each co-author on this publication!
