About CanCan

About the CanCan Education Program

The Rivkin Center’s CanCan education program is all about putting people into action about their health and giving them tools for early detection, prevention, and self-advocacy. We give healthy women (and some men!), from all walks of life, a fun way to learn what they can do to feel more in control and less in fear about cancer. We also give cancer survivors a platform to share the stories that can save lives.

Who we educate

Our mission is to educate women (and men!) from all walks of life and across all ages on the risks, prevention methods, and signs and symptoms of ovarian and breast cancer.

How we educate

During our 60-minute or 15-minute CanCan workshop, our health instructors and facilitators share their cancer stories and educate on ovarian and breast health through games and Q&A segments.
