Meet your Policy Committee.

The Wisconsin Cancer Collaborative's Policy Committee develops and promotes a biennial Policy Agenda that supports the Wisconsin Cancer Plan 2020-2030.

The Policy Committee educates our membership about the connections between public policy and cancer control, and helps our members take action to advance the Policy Agenda's goals. Policy Committee members monitor emerging issues at the local, state, and federal level; advise the development of policy-related resources; and provide guidance to our members and staff.
