What is it?

The Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership (CCCNP) has launched a new effort, designed to assist CCC coalitions and programs in addressing health inequities in cancer. The initiative specifically focuses 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. In addition, the CCCNP is hosting a quarterly zoom series, where experts and CCC coalitions share ways to advance health equity through CCC coalitions and plans. 


Please join the next session on February 23rd, 2021.
