The Indiana Cancer Consortium (ICC) is continually working to reduce Indiana’s cancer burdens by implementing evidence-based strategic initiatives and practices. The ICC’s Regional Cancer Control Coalition Initiative addresses region-specific cancer burdens throughout Indiana by utilizing cancer data, research, and local collaboration and expertise.
By pooling resources, promoting education, and fostering community collaboration, the ICC is able to consolidate and strengthen community efforts and limit the effects of cancer throughout the state. The goal of this initiative is to determine real solutions to community burdens and create sustainable practices moving forward. These initiatives introduce opportunities for employers, healthcare providers, health professionals, policy-makers, and community advocates to promote cancer prevention and control practices throughout Indiana.
Due to a unique blending of reliable data sources with local perspective and influence, the ICC regional cancer control coalitions are able to create action plans specific to each region’s needs. The ICC has established and is maintaining coalitions in Indiana Public Health Districts 6, 9, and 10, and is currently developing additional regional coalitions in Districts 1 and 2.
