Thank you to all committee members for their time and expertise. Without their dedication, the development of this plan would not have been possible. Members of the continuum and cross-cutting committees devoted countless hours researching and assessing needs, developing goals and objectives and creating strategies for achieving objectives. The leadership and guidance provided by the committee co-chairs was invaluable to the development of this plan. Special thanks to the members of the Board of Directors and of the Strategic Planning Advisory Group for their insights, their reviews and their editorial advice.
Participants at the Partnership’s regional meetings contributed thoughtful input, ensuring that this Plan accurately reflects the knowledge, best practices and expertise of the cancer community across the state of Connecticut.
The staff of the Connecticut Cancer Partnership worked diligently to support the committee and regional meetings, coordinate the plan review process, synthesize all feedback to the plan and develop consistent goals, activities and strategic actions across the continuum. Lucinda Hogarty, Director led this effort; while Amanda Sadlon, Project Coordinator provided additional coordination and feedback. Betty Murray, Disparities Project Coordinator, oversaw disparities related activities across the continuum. Emily Rosenthal, Evaluator provided evaluation support for the development of goals, objectives and strategic activities.
