NYS Breast and Prostate Cancer Peer Education Project

As part of Governor Cuomo’s 2016 Breast Cancer Initiatives, ten (10) Breast Cancer Peer Education contracts will provide peer-led, community-based education activities to target populations (e.g., low-income white, African American, Latinos, refugees and immigrants) aimed at increasing awareness of breast and prostate cancer screening.   Women will receive culturally-relevant breast cancer screening promotion messages and be encouraged to discuss their risk of breast cancer and screening options with their doctor.

The NYS Breast and Prostate Cancer Peer Education Moodle Site can be accessed here.

The Moodle Site, supported by the University at Albany School of Public Health, serves as a blended learning portal that allows individuals to access  live and “on demand” webinars, educational resources, forums, learning activities and more. Moodle is web-based and can be accessed from anywhere.  Content on the Moodle platform is easily accessible across devices.  Moodle provides the structure needed to collaborate and communicate.
The Community Based Breast and Prostate Cancer Peer Education Program Moodle Site is your professional development tool, and your active participation in the discussion forums, postings and learning activities is essential and critical.
