The WECAN Academy is a training program for leading patient advocates from Europe. The program was conducted for the first time in 2019 with great success. Visit the WECAN Academy 2019 to learn more about the program.
In June 2020, WECAN planned to again host the WECAN Academy. Due to the COVID Pandemic, we have had to postpone the 2020 WECAN Academy from June 2020 to January 2021, then again to July 2021. Ultimately, we have had to cancel the four-day face-to-face training out of concern for our participants and speakers who are mainly cancer patient themselves. To bridge the long gap for the patient advocates since the WECAN Academy 2019, WECAN transformed the WECAN Academy into a virtual training series.
From December 2020 into July 2022, WECAN hosted a series of monthly webinars on the topics otherwise covered in the WECAN Academy in person event.
