Lifelines™ is a series of cancer education articles, videos and audio files from the National Cancer Institute’s Multicultural Media Outreach (MMO) Program. The series addresses cancer prevention, treatment, survivorship, health disparities, clinical trials and other cancer-related topics for African-American, Hispanic, Asian American and Pacific Islander and Native American populations.
These materials were developed for use by ethnic media, but anyone can download and re-post or publish Lifelines™. Articles, videos, and audio files are listed by topic to help you find information of interest to your audience. If you need assistance, please e-mail the MMO team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the Spotlight: In 2012, MMO introduced Lifelines™ on NIH Radio, a series of 60-second audio segments on various cancer topics that can be downloaded and broadcast on ethnic radio outlets or posted on websites that reach minority audiences. The audio segments are produced in mp3 format by NIH Radio and are extracted from Lifelines™ videos. They are part of NIH Radio’s “Health Matters” programming. The MMO Lifelines™ segments are also available on Lifelines™ topic pages (see choices to the left).
Lifelines™ videos: Featuring videos on a wide range of topics, including colorectal, breast, and cervical cancer, tobacco use and lung cancer, complementary and alternative medicine, and nutrition and cancer risk.
@NCImcMedia: Multicultural information and news, including tools developed specifically for journalists reporting on cancer at minority media outlets.
