When & Where
New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Collaboration
The NH CCC, an initiative of the Foundation for Healthy Communities, is a partnership of individuals and organizations working together to eliminate cancer, the leading cause of death in the state of New Hampshire.
NH CCC members developed the 2015-2020 NH Cancer Plan to guide our activities. Activities are targeted toward addressing health disparities using policy, systems, and environmental change approaches that optimize health outcomes for all residents of NH.
The Plan is organized around three goals. These include:
1. Foster communities and systems that support and reinforce healthy lifestyles.
2. Prevent & detect cancer at its earliest stage.
3. Optimize quality of life for those affected by cancer.
We're proud of our accomplishments, but there is still much to be done. It is the breadth of experience and knowledge of our members that leads to our success. You can participate in a shared vision to reduce the burden of cancer by joining one of the Task Forces or Committees and sharing your expertise, resources, and passion. Learn more at our upcoming annual meeting on April 6, 2016. You can register NOW.
