National Networks Collaborate to Address Cancer Disparities

As the eight national CDC-funded networks for tobacco and cancer prevention, we would like to collaboratively express our support for National Cancer Survivors Day by illustrating the impact that cancer has among the diverse minority populations we serve. Most importantly, though, we want to celebrate the progress made to improving the quality of life and survivorship of those affected by cancer. Our networks are committed to reducing the prevalence of cancer and addressing cancer-related health disparities. We welcome you to download our fact sheets and learn more about the research, training, initiatives and programs that are helping thousands to #CelebrateLife.
