Cancer Curriculum Initiative
Developing Materials to Improve Children's Understanding of Cancer
Sara Conrad and Professor Amy Wilstermann found a lack of teaching materials about cancer targeted to children. They focused on developing a curriculum focusing on four sections: introducing children to the basic scientific concepts of cancer, teaching about the most common cancers for children under age 9, leukemia and lymphoma, presenting information about cancer treatments, and lastly helping children find ways to care for others with cancer.
