Committee Activity

The ICC currently has a number action teams and working groups operating under four categorical areas. Action teams and working groups are composed of key organizational stakeholders and interested community members from across the state. These dedicated coalition members come together to collaborate and share resources addressing any number of objectives from the Indiana Cancer Control Plan 2010-2014. The activities of these groups are guided by research and evidence-based intervention. We thank all of our volunteer members for their participation in our action teams and work groups. Without our volunteers giving their support, time, and expertise, we would not be able to accomplish all that we do.

As designated by the ICC Steering Committee in our organizational structure, the four categorical areas are listed below.
