Staff at York Racecourse have taken part in two Cancer Champion training sessions ahead of the Humber, Coast and Vale Cancer Alliance Conference next month.
Humber, Coast and Vale Cancer Alliance are hosting their first annual conference at York Racecourse on Thursday 5th March and staff were invited to attend free Cancer Champion training in preparation for the event.
The free training sessions taught staff at York Racecourse about the key facts, symptoms and screenings which are linked to a number of cancers and those who took part in the training will be wearing their Cancer Champion badges at the conference next month.
Cancer Champions raise awareness about cancer in their work place or community by engaging with people in conversation and encouraging others to take up cancer screening invitations or go to their GP if they have symptoms they are worried about.
Louise Daly, Commercial Manager at York Racecourse said: “Thanks to Sarah for the training at York Racecourse. The delivery was superb and the content was extremely useful, informative and even surprising in parts. If only every human being could go through the training.”
