Workgroups

The Pennsylvania Cancer Coalition is organized into workgroups and subcommittees to meet the goals outlined for 2019-2023. Workgroups are designed to primarily address prevention, screening and early detection of cancer, and ensuring quality of life for cancer survivors. Workgroups give organizations and individuals a structure to understand how evidence-based approaches are implemented to fulfill Cancer Plan goals. Workgroups meet every quarter and capture their progress in this Action Report.
