ACS CAN Week Jan. 14th-18th
A Kick-Off to a Year of Action!
CAN Week is a week-long social-media celebration of all things related to advocacy. Each day of the week, campuses will be invited to participate in a variety of mini-tasks intended to encourage their participation in a variety of advocacy efforts, promote the mission of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, and to encourage life-long advocacy in 2019 and into the future.
Monday: Join the Club! – Students are encouraged to join the Cancer Action Network and to strive for CAN Club status on their campuses.
Tuesday: Get Informed! – Students are encouraged to learn more about the policy work of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and to get involved in CAN efforts regarding Global Cervical Cancer.
Wednesday: Build Connections! – Students are encouraged to get involved in state-level CAN efforts and learn more about the various policy efforts in their own state.
Thursday: Share Your Story! – Students are encouraged to find new ways to share their cancer story and are given new opportunities to share that story with friends, family, and their larger community.
Friday: Make a Pledge! – Students are encouraged to make a pledge to ‘do something’ in 2019, and to constantly seek out new opportunities to be advocates.
Throughout the week, we will also highlight those campuses that reach CAN Club status and encourage campuses to pursue the new 5-Star CAN Campus Recognition.
