Start an Anticancer Learning Circle in your community today.

Get together with others for support, ideas, and encouragement as you learn to create your Anticancer lifestyle. An Anticancer lifestyle supports behaviors that can reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, and promote overall health.

What is a Learning Circle?

People learn better when they learn together. They have more fun, too! That’s why we created our Learning Circles. Participants can gather in person or online to share ideas and support as they learn to create their Anticancer lifestyle.

Learning Circles are organized around the 10-hour, self-paced Anticancer Lifestyle Program (ACLP) free online course, divided into five modules: Change, Diet, Mindset, Fitness, and Environment.

Who can organize a Learning Circle?

Whether you’re a medical provider, member of a cancer support group, or just interested in a healthier lifestyle, you can organize a Learning Circle. We provide the tools and resources to help you get started—all you have to do is bring people together.

Who should join an Anticancer Learning Circle?

  • Patients can join Learning Circles organized by their hospital or provider.
  • Members of a support group can gather to learn how to make healthy lifestyle changes “stick.”
  • Individuals interested in prevention can join with friends and family for mutual support and education about wellness.

How are Learning Circles organized?

The Learning Circle Organizer’s Manual gives specific instructions for how to convene weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly meetings, depending on the preference of the organizer and Circle members. The Anticancer Lifestyle Program online course is broken up into appropriately-sized chunks, which are assigned to participants to be completed before the next meeting. Discussion questions and meeting format ideas are also provided.

Learning Circle success story at a cancer center.

“The Anticancer Lifestyle Program has been extremely helpful in making sure that our patients have access to evidence-based resources. We are very grateful to have the ACLP help our patients make positive lifestyle changes. They report feeling empowered and motivated. As clinicians, my team and I feel confident in the information provided.”
