Can a story be your most effective cancer control tool? Stories help us remember, shape our identity, and influence how we see the world. The July NCI "Research to Reality" cyber-seminar will examine the role of effective narratives in cancer control prevention and implementation. Join experts, including UNC Lineberger's own Dr. Stephanie Wheeler, for a wide-ranging discussion of the power of story-telling -- not just as a“ communication channel” but the research behind what makes for an effective narrative.
