The George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center is funded through a cooperative agreement to work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to design and implement comprehensive, high quality training and technical assistance to comprehensive cancer control programs and their partners. Comprehensive cancer control is an integrated and coordinated approach to reducing cancer incidence, morbidity, and mortality through prevention, early detection, treatment, and survivorship.
The project supports programs in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, U.S. Associated pacific islands/territories, tribes, and tribal organizations. As part of the project, the Cancer Control TAP website provides a centralized library of resources, training, and technical assistance on a variety of cancer-related topics.
The GW Cancer Center is also a member of the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership, a collaborative group of diverse national organizations working together to build and strengthen comprehensive cancer control efforts across the nation.
