Talk to Someone

National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have partnered to launch a conversation simulator to support and help cancer survivors.

Staying healthy after cancer treatment can be challenging, specially during current times. Tobacco use, obesity, poor nutrition, and physical inactivity increase a cancer survivors’ risk of their cancer coming back as well as the risk for getting secondary cancers and other health conditions.

Talk to Someone allows cancer survivors to ask questions and engage in conversations with Linda, a virtual cancer survivor, who provides brief, informative, and emotionally supportive answers to help shape behavior change, while also citing her own experiences as a survivor.
