Community Education: An Introduction to the Science of Cancer
A day-long seminar where graduate student cancer researchers present the science of the disease to a lay audience
This project creates a seminar in which graduate students involved in cancer research introduce the science of cancer through a lay-language presentation targeted to community members as well as to undergraduate students. This is an extension of an existing partnership between cancer researchers at Cornell and the Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes.
The new seminar will provide graduate students with the opportunity to present scientific formation to a lay audience, introduce both the scientific and human sides of cancer to undergraduate students, share the fundamentals of cancer research with community members, expand the pool of community members involved in the partnership to other Upstate communities and encourage undergraduates to participate in the partnership throughout the year.
