Bridging Local and State Cancer Control Efforts through Evidence
Tuesday, June 12, 2012, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST
It can be challenging to implement national or state goals and objectives, such as State Cancer Plans, at the local level and incorporate the evidence into programs in the community. The Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) National Partnership helps to bridge this divide by supporting CCC coalitions in the development and implementation of comprehensive cancer control plans at the state, tribe, territory, U.S. Pacific Island Jurisdictions, and local levels.
The National Cancer Institute’s June Research to Reality (R2R) cyber-seminar will feature examples of successful comprehensive cancer control coalitions using evidence-based public health practice to implement state cancer plans in local jurisdictions. The seminar will explore state and local health department perspectives as Bruce Behringer from the Tennessee Department of Health and Della Rhoades from Nodaway County Health Department in Missouri share their stories of success, lessons learned, and opportunities. Additionally, Brandie Adams from the National Association for County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) will share information on its new upcoming resource guides. The guides are designed to support local implementation of comprehensive cancer control work through local community-based coalitions.
Join us this June and learn how your local and state coalitions can better work together to bridge research and practice and improve the health of your community.
