Research to Reality Cyber-Seminar: Integrating Cancer Control into Chronic Disease Frameworks: What Works and Why?

Registration Confirmation - R2R Cyber-Seminar: State Cancer Profiles

Integrating Cancer Control into Chronic Disease Frameworks: What Works and Why?

Tuesday, April 15, 2014, 2:00 p.m. Ė 3:00 p.m. ET

Chronic disease programs in public health agencies across the US are increasingly integrating activities across single-disease program lines. Comprehensive cancer control programs have in many cases benefited from chronic disease program integration. Many realize a new potential for efficient use of staff, funds, and surveillance and intervention efforts. Such integration however is not without barriers, challenges and constraints. Despite these challenges, there is a growing determination among public health professionals and policy makers to coordinate and link chronic disease public health programs.   

In our April NCI cyber-seminar, we will look across national and state programs to highlight principles for successful chronic disease program integration initiatives and specific recommendations for comprehensive cancer control and chronic disease programs.

Nikki Hayes, Chief of the Comprehensive Cancer Control Branch, Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, National Center of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will give an overview of what CDCís vision for how such integration is viewed at the national level and how successful integration is strengthening cancer control initiatives. 

Krystal D. Moorwood, a Chronic Disease Supervisor with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment will share how the Colorado Chronic Disease (CD) State Plan broadly encompasses the Cancer Plan. Krystal will highlight Colorado's internal cancer program management and discuss how a health systems project that originated in 'cancer' grew to encompass other chronic disease initiatives. 

As always, part of the webinar will be dedicated to your questions. We look forward to you engaging with the presenters, and sharing your own experiences.
