This year marks the 20th anniversary of the National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program. We are pleased to provide you with a link to a new Special Issue of the journal Cancer Causes and Control (Volume 29, Number 12, December 2018) that celebrates both NCCCP grantees’ and state, tribe, territory and Pacific Island Jurisdiction comprehensive cancer control (CCC) coalitions’ efforts and progress in advancing cancer control in the United States.
This is the third Special Issue on CCC, all published in Cancer Causes and Control. In this Special Issue, we offer reflections on the progress made over the past twenty years in addressing the US cancer burden through the CCC approach and present a range of topics, from a description of how CCC programs and coalitions have evolved over the years to analyses of how they can affect change through policy, systems and environmental approaches in areas such as liver cancer prevention, lung cancer screening, and addressing cancer survivors’ wellness. The Special Issue also includes national perspectives and outcomes from the NCCCP and the CCCNP, in their collaborative efforts to “conquer cancer.”
The link to the articles is available for free for a limited time. Once the hard copies of the journal have been printed in January 2019 a copy will be sent to each NCCCP grantee. Please share the link with your staff and CCC coalition chair, leadership and members.
It is the hope of the authors and special issue Editorial Workgroup that you will read these articles, cite them in your own work, share them with potential new partners and use them to continue to build the evidence needed to show the success of CCC in the United States.
