The Community Outreach and Prevention Education Program (COPE) educates the public about cancer risk, screening, and prevention. A staff of health educators attend health events, give educational presentations, collaborate on public health campaigns, develop up-to-date educational materials, and promote community awareness of all types of cancer.

We work directly with schools, worksites, nonprofits, church groups, and community organizations to ensure that each individual in our community is educated and aware.

Our staff delivers the highest quality education and resources to the public locally in Utah and regionally to Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, and Montana.
