Northeast Florida Cancer Partnership (NEFCP)

Northeast Florida Cancer Partnership (NEFCP)

SITUATION: Cancer is the leading cause of death in the United States and Florida. In Northeast Florida, Nassau County has the highest age-adjusted cancer death rate while St. Johns County has the lowest. Florida has taken a comprehensive approach in implementing cancer control efforts to reduce the disparities, morbidity, and mortality associated with this disease. The Florida Cancer Plan was created by the Florida Cancer Control and Research Advisory Council (CCRAB) to provide an overview of the cancer burden in Florida, health disparities by population, specific behavioral and preventive measures to reduce cancer risks, and early detection techniques by specific cancer sites or classifications. This plan envisions Floridians living longer and healthier lives through healthy personal lifestyles, healthy families, healthy communities, and health-promoting systems that protect all people from the threats of cancer. 

PROGRAM OBJECTIVE: The Northeast Florida Cancer Control Collaborative is now the Northeast Florida Cancer Partnership (NEFCP). The Partnership seeks to empower communities on cancer prevention, education, and treatment to determine the greatest cancer-related needs in the region.
