National LGBT Cancer Network is extremely pleased to be offering scholarships to the upcoming National Conference on Tobacco or Health (NCTOH

LGBTQ community smoke at rates 40% higher than others, right? And that smoking is implicated in well over 1/3 of all cancers, right? 

 

Because of this the National LGBT Cancer Network is extremely pleased to be offering scholarships to the upcoming (and rare) National Conference on Tobacco or Health (NCTOH), Aug 27-29 in Minneapolis MN. 

 

Are you a concerned professional, a student, a queer leader, an advocate… this scholarship is open to all. Members of underrepresented minority groups are particularly encouraged to apply. 

 

We will ask that all recipients write a few paragraphs each day about what they learned and how that might affect queers for sharing on social media. 

 

Deadline to apply is Tue July 30th! 

 

Ready to apply now? Here’s the form. Think someone else would be great to get to NCTOH? Please forward this email to them. We hope to see y’all in August!

 

Thanks very much to National Network of Public Health Institutes for funding these scholarships.

West Virginia Caring will be hosting its 23rd annual bereavement camp for kids, Camp Caring

West Virginia Caring will be hosting its 23rd annual bereavement camp for kids, Camp Caring, on August 3rd, 2019 at Camp Mountaineer in Monongalia County, WV.

 

Camp Caring is held to support adolescents, ages 6-14, in WV that have experienced the death of a love one.  Focusing on large and small group activities, the Camp empowers each adolescent with the ability to express their grief and successfully cope with their feeling of loss and trauma. Camp Caring runs optional  concurrent sessions for the adults(s) in the child’s life. The purpose is that each family member is individual strengthened and supported so that the entire family can move forward together to a place of a new normal. 

 

Camp Caring is a free all day event!

 

Please help us in spreading the word on camp and extending the information out to those who may benefit.
