The WI Cancer Council is embarking on a set of Implementation Action Plans, designed to accelerate progress in areas of greatest need in the WI CCC Plan.
In an all-member webinar, The State of the State: Cancer Control in Wisconsin, on Oct. 4, 2017, members of the Cancer Council helped to narrow these areas of focus. A recording of the webinar is posted below, along with the slides and Plan infographics.
During the webinar, members:
- learned about existing cancer control trends and activities across Wisconsin
- heard progress updates on the WI CCC Plan measures used to monitor change
- helped to determine what action items should be addressed in the new Implementation Action Plans
