The NBLIC II National Office in partnership with the NBLIC II Chicago Cancer Coalition developed the SBSA educational curriculum.
In developing the SBSA curriculum, it was important to maintain central message/focus, which included the "local flavor" of the Chicago-developed program, but also incorporated scientific findings, NCI messages as well as NBLIC II guidelines.
In addition to the presentation, patrons receive T-shirts/cookbooks and NBLIC information packets.
This questionnaire has been modified from past NBLIC II survey instruments, which were highly reliable indicators of community organization representation in activities and events.
NBLIC II Regional Office staff administered all questionnaires at the beginning of each training session.
A majority of community volunteers (720/0) were members of organized NBLIC II community coalitions.
