As a part of CCC technical assistance efforts, the GW Cancer Center develops social media toolkits for cancer awareness months to help CCC programs, coalitions and other stakeholders strengthen their communication efforts.
The toolkits each contain evidence-informed communication strategies, pre-written Tweets and Facebook posts, as well as other social media and cancer awareness-related tools and resources.
Don't have the time or capacity to implement these toolkits? Don't fret! You can still engage your audience by retweeting messages from @GWCancer.
