The NH CCC is a partnership of individuals and organizations working together to eliminate cancer, the leading cause of death in the state. The NH CCC developed the New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan, 2015-2020 to address the following goals:
• Foster communities and systems that support and reinforce healthy lifestyles;
• Prevent and detect cancer at its earliest stage; and
• Optimize quality of life for those affected by cancer.
This new plan is dynamic, with an emphasis on policy, systems and environmental change efforts, and with special attention to health equity.
The implementation model for the 2015-2020 NH Cancer Plan is organized around distinct Task Forces (initially three) related to specific cross-cutting themes. Click here for more information.
We're proud of our accomplishments, but there is still much to be done. It is the breadth of experience and knowledge/skills/interest areas of our NH CCC members that leads to our success. Help us reach out goals by joining one of our Task Forces and sharing your expertise.
