Every individual and organization has a role to play in the fight against cancer. Learn about what you can do.


Join a Workgroup

Because the fight against cancer is so large, the North Dakota Cancer Coalition formed workgroups to focus our efforts. All of the workgroups play an essential role in driving forward priorities and implementing strategies that address the burden of cancer.


The NDCC is made up of four workgroups: Human papillomavirus (HPV), Screening and Early Detection, Treatment and Survivorship, and Data/Evaluation.  Workgroup priorities are linked to objectives in the 2011-2016 North Dakota Cancer Control Plan.  The timeline for implementation of these activities varies and some of the activities may be ongoing. 


The NDCC also has standing committees to address various responsibilities within the Coalition.  Some of the standing committees meet regularly while others meet for a time-limited duration or to work on a special project.
