New Three-Part Webinar Series: The Nine Habits of Successful Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalitions

Since the release of the Nine Habits of Successful Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalitions (9 Habits), the evidence-based, comprehensive and interconnected characteristics of successful coalitions have helped maintain active and thriving coalitions across states, tribes, territories and Pacific Island Jurisdictions.

In summer 2018, the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership (CCCNP) conducted a three-part "refresher" series on the 9 Habits. The topics were identified as most important to address based on feedback from Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) coalitions. View the archived webinars below to explore the activities and attributes that make for stronger coalitions poised to address cancer-related needs and health disparities. The primary audience for this series are the state, tribes, territories and Pacific Island Jurisdiction CCC Program Directors and members of their CCC coalitions.
