What is it?

The Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership (CCCNP) is launching a new effort, designed to assist CCC coalitions and programs in addressing health inequities in cancer. The initiative will specifically focus on:

  • How a coalition can advance health equity through CCC plan update processes and CCC plan implementation and
  • How a CCC coalition can look at its operations through a social justice and equity lens

As part of this effort the CCCNP has gathered a set of resources, specifically for CCC coalitions, to help you learn about the issues and to take action. The CCCNP will host a quarterly zoom series, where we’ll hear from experts and CCC coalitions about ways to advance health equity through CCC coalitions and plans. Please join on November 12 at 3pm ET for the first quarterly Zoom session.
