Full course description
This course is designed to help you better understand the many different diseases that together we call “cancer.”
We believe that if more people have a better understanding of cancer, they are more likely to take steps to lower the risk of cancer for themselves, their families and their communities. Helping people achieve a deeper understanding of cancer can also lead to improved care for cancer patients.
We aim for this course to be accessible to those with limited knowledge of science, but it will also be useful to healthcare professionals who may have limited background in the field of cancer. The course is organized so that the earlier modules provide foundational information, through lectures and readings, that will help you better understand later modules.
