Delta State University's Sister 2 Sister Challenge Project is offering a free Cancer Prevention for African Americans Community Health Education Instructor Course.

The course will be offered from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. July 9-10 at the Delta State University Center for Community and Economic Development Building located at 1417 College St. in Cleveland.

This two day interactive course trains participants to become community health education instructors in the areas of breast, cervical and prostate cancer prevention. The facilitators use credible, relevant educational tips, tools, and strategies such as culturally-appropriate role-plays, demonstrations and practice to help participants build skills needed to conduct culturally and linguistically competent community-based cancer prevention education sessions.
