The NH CCC is a partnership of individuals and organizations working together to eliminate cancer, a leading cause of death in the state. The NH CCC developed the New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan, 2010-2014 to address the following priorities:
• Prevent cancer by creating environments that support a healthy lifestyle;
• Increase early detection and prevention of cancer through screening;
• Improve the treatment of cancer and quality of life for people living with cancer; and
• Report on the latest cancer research.
Four work groups are organized around the continuum of care model: Primary Prevention, Prevention and Early Detection, Treatment and Survivorship, and Palliation. The work groups plan activities together to accomplish the objectives outlined in the Cancer Control Plan.
We're proud of our accomplishments, but there is still much to be done. It is the breadth of experience and knowledge of over 200 NH CCC members that leads to our success. Help us reach out goals by joining one of our work groups and sharing your expertise.
Together — Eliminating Cancer.
The Collaboration hosts an annual conference each spring. The next conference will be held Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at the Courtyard by Marriott Grappone Conference Center in Concord, NH. Check back for additional information.
The vision of the New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Collaboration is for cancer incidence, morbidity, and mortality to be significantly reduced or eliminated and for the people of New Hampshire to enjoy a healthy quality of life.
The mission of the New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Collaboration is to reduce significantly the incidence of, suffering from, and mortality due to cancer for people in New Hampshire through prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship, and palliation. We will accomplish this goal by means of an integrated and coordinated alliance of stakeholders that will utilize available epidemiological data and evidence-based research to set priorities for action.
