NACCHO Supports Local Implementation of Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC)
Through a cooperative agreement with CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, NACCHO provides technical assistance to LHDs working toward implementation of Comprehensive Cancer Prevention and Control (CCC) efforts at the community level. NACCHO supports LHDs in planning, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based cancer prevention and control strategies to improve population health. In line with its strategic map, NACCHO supports LHDs in championing effective cancer prevention approaches by:
Using News/Social media for Cancer Control and Prevention
Vollmer Dahlke and Johnson-Mallard will share their perspectives on the best uses of social and new media and how they addressed key issues of cost, dissemination, and sustainability.

Calling out to LHDs: Interested in Pilot Testing NACCHO's Brand-New Cancer Resource Suite?
NACCHO is seeking 4 LHDs to pilot test its new Local Comprehensive Cancer Control and Prevention Resource Suite. The Resource Suite is designed to teach LHDs how to:
Pilot testers will be required to view a screencast that provides an overview of the Resource Suite, agree to use it in their cancer prevention work for the next 1-2 months, and take a survey at the end of the trial period. Contact Brandie Adams to learn more.
New NACCHO Resource: Comprehensive Cancer Control Screencast
Implementing Comprehensive Cancer Control at the Local Level
Comprehensive cancer control (CCC) is a collaborative process through which a community and its partners pool resources to reduce the burden of cancer. Often, LHDs lead or participate in local-level coalitions/partnerships/or taskforce in their communities as a mechanism for convening local stakeholders to reduce the cancer burden in their jurisdictions. These coalitions serve as a platform for convening influential stakeholders to maximize time, resources, and the manpower needed to sustain the impact of state and local cancer control efforts.
NACCHO's new screencast helps LHDs enhance their cancer prevention efforts at the local level.

New NACCHO Cancer Control Coalition Building Toolkit
NACCHO has just launched a web-based resource to help local health departments implement cancer prevention activities via partnerships with state and local stakeholders.The interactive toolkit, provides tips, tools, and resources for how LHDs can build local coalitions that are organized to implement effective comprehensive cancer prevention and control strategies in their jurisdictions.
Access the toolkit at www.lhdcancer.org to:
·Organize a coalition and build its capacity
·Leverage community support and engage stakeholders across sectors
·Determine jurisdictional priorities for cancer prevention and control
·Develop a strategic plan for achieving cancer prevention and control priorities
·Partner with CDC-funded state comprehensive cancer control coalitions to achieve local priorities
·Implement evidence-based approaches for addressing the cancer problem in your community
·Evaluate impact of coalition activities on the cancer burden
The DCPC Releases Three New Resources

What is Comprehensive Cancer Control
Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) consists of collaborative strategies to leverage community resources for cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment. Common CCC activities include implementation of strategies designed to reduce cancer risk, promote healthy lifestyles, ensure access to screenings/diagnostic technologies, and improve the quality of treatment and support services to enhance survivorship. Through the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control Division, CDC funds state-based CCC coalitions who work diligently to build infrastructure, leverage resources, conduct surveillance, determine priorities, and measure the impact of programs designed to improve cancer outcomes.
To submit a technical assistance request or get connected with your state's CCC coalition, contact Brandie Adams, MPH at email@example.com or (202) 507-4210.
