The American Samoa Community Cancer Network (ASCCN)Community Researcher Training Program was held August-November 2008. I developed the materials and facilitated 6 workshops for community members and students- Community Surveys, Participatory Research Tools, Planning and Evaluating Health Programs and Social Marketing.
I mentored 7 program graduates who conducted 3-month community-based cancer investigation projects funded by the ASCCN.  Researchers presented their results at a community forum May 2009.
