Maine Lung Cancer Coalition Webinar March 24, 2021

The Maine Medical Association-Center for Quality Improvement, formerly Qualidigm/Maine Quality Counts, is excited to offer its second Maine Lung Cancer Coalition (MLCC) webinar of 2021: “Destigmatizing Lung Cancer: A Theory Based Approach to Public Health Messaging”

 


“Destigmatizing Lung Cancer: A Theory Based Approach to Public Health Messaging”

Join the Maine Lung Cancer Coalition, in partnership with the Maine Medical Association-Center for Quality Improvement (MMA-CQI), on March 24, 2021, from 12 – 1 p.m. and learn how stigma and implicit bias impact individuals with lung cancer and how to motivate individuals to engage in risk-reducing behaviors by applying social psychological theory to public health messaging. Learn how to translate this knowledge into positive, non-blaming social media messaging with the goal of influencing and thus changing behaviors to decrease lung cancer risk factors in the populations you serve. Register Here.

We hope you can join us! 

After attending this webinar, participants will: 

1. Understand stigma as a psychological concept 

2. Understand ways in which stigma and implicit bias impact individuals with lung cancer 

3. Understand how social psychological theory can be applied to public health messaging to motivate the general public to engage in risk-reducing behaviors.
