Funded by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control, through the Florida Department of Health, the Northeast Florida Cancer Control Collaborative (NEFCCC) seeks to educate and empower communities on cancer prevention and treatment and collect data to determine the greatest cancer-related needs.
The mission statement of the Northeast Florida Cancer Control Collaborative is to educate and empower the northeast Florida community on cancer prevention, treatment, education, advocacy and research. We cover a seven county area, including Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, St. Johns, and Volusia counties.
If you are interested in joining the collaborative or would like to be added to the NEFCCC e-mail list to receive e-newsletters and other updates, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The collaborative accomplishes its mission through interventions by workgroups.
The Infrastructure Workgroup uses a coordinated approach among public and private cancer control stakeholders to implement cancer activities in the northeast Florida area. The activities of this workgroup include reviewing the Bylaws and Strategic Planning documents annually, increasing membership, developing and maintaining a communication plan, and increasing awareness of the Cancer Resource Guide. The activities of this workgroup are aligned with goal one of the Florida Cancer Plan.
