Are you prepared to make a meaningful impact on the lives of young cancer survivors and contribute to a healthier future?

The OACCUs Ambassador Training is tailored for healthcare professionals and young cancer survivors. It is crafted to equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to make a significant difference in your own life and the lives of other young cancer survivors.

The training is structured into various sections, addressing questions such as:
1. What does a healthy lifestyle for young cancer survivors entail, based on the 4 OACCUs pillars: 
    (1) Physical Activity & Outdoor Sport, (2) Balanced Nutrition, (3) Sustainability & Nature, and (4) Physical & Mental Wellbeing?
2. How are these 4 pillars interconnected?
3. Presentation of each individual pillar.
4. Behavioral change towards a healthy lifestyle: providing inspiration and concrete models.
5. Introduction of the OACCUs Toolbox, which includes:
   - A marketplace of ideas
   - Network & resource hub
   - Motivation & empowerment
   - Registered users community space

The OACCUs Ambassador Training will be delivered in various formats, ranging from one-day events to one-week training courses with short daily sessions (akin to evening courses) to digital events.

We are eager to learn about your preferred type of event. Feel free to reach out to us at contact@oac-connect.eu.
