Additionally, its awareness initiatives include development efforts for up-to-date educational materials that cover all types of cancer.

Educational materials and cancer resources provided by COPE are available to the public on local and national levels. States served by the HCI program include Utah, Idaho, Nevada, and Montana. Moreover, state and community organizations can make requests for COPE appearances at their events or for collaboration on a cancer prevention project.
