Publish an Op-ed in Your Community
Many spouses promote cancer awareness in their communities by publishing an op-ed in their local state papers. An op-ed is a piece published under your name in your local paper; this is an effective way to educate your community.
Congressional Families offers monthly op-ed templates on coordinating national cancer awareness months. If you would like to publish an op-ed in your local paper please email or call Lisa McGovern or Cassie Smith (703) 837-3697 for a copy of this month’s template.
See an example of an op-ed published by spouse Barbara Grassley in her state newspaper.
