Comprehensive Cancer Control Program
Eastern Idaho Public Health's Comprehensive Cancer Control Program works to increase community awareness of all aspects of cancer including: prevention, early detection, screening guidelines, treatment, and survivorship. This is accomplished through partnership development, media campaigns, healthcare provider education, worksite campaigns, and community-based programs and events. Major areas of focus include colorectal cancer and skin cancer.

Comprehensive Cancer Alliance for Idaho Logo The Comprehensive Cancer Alliance for Idaho (CCAI) is a partnership between many dedicated individuals and organizations from healthcare and professional organizations, cancer-related and other non-profit organizations, and individuals touched by cancer. The Alliance is working to reduce the number of preventable cancers and decrease late stage diagnosis of treatable and survivable forms of cancer by improving screening rates in Idaho and to improve the quality of life of Idahoans impacted by cancer.

CCAI was formed to achieve its goals through the development and implementation of an Idaho Comprehensive Cancer Strategic Plan.  http://www.ccaidaho.org/
