Priority Areas

Together we can make a difference.

The Cancer Action Coalition of Virginia has identified priority areas which taskforces or groups work together to address specific goals and objectives of the Virginia Cancer Plan. The goal of priority taskforces or groups is to assemble stakeholders throughout Virginia to build a cohesive, efficient, and united group of partners who focus on a specific type of cancer or related issue.  The efforts of each taskforce or group include promotion and support of education, preventive services, evidence-based interventions, and advocacy. 

Members of a taskforce or group collaborate to increase the awareness, accessibility, education, engagement, and resources required to reducing the burden of cancer across the Commonwealth.
