Just what is “comprehensive cancer control”? It is communities,
organizations and other partners working together to prevent
cancer, find it earlier, treat it more effectively and make life better
for people living with the disease. These types of partnerships are
happening right here in Iowa.
http://canceriowa.org/abouttheicc.aspx
Comprehensive #cancercontrol = partnering in cancer prevention,
treatment, screening & survivorship. http://bit.ly/abouttheicc15
In Iowa, comprehensive cancer control is guided by the Iowa Cancer
Plan, a roadmap for reducing the burden cancer puts on the people
of our state. Read it and discover how the plan and the Iowa Cancer
Consortium can support the efforts you’re passionate about.

The Iowa Cancer Plan provides direction for cancer programs,
research and policy initiatives, and is currently being revised for
2018-2022. Let us know what you would like to see included in the
revision! http://canceriowa.org/Iowa-Cancer-Plan/State-CancerPlan-Revision.aspx

Pros of participating in a cancer clinical trial: 1. You may get access
to promising new treatment methods that aren’t available outside
of a clinical trial; 2. Newer treatment methods available in clinical
trials may have fewer side effects than usual treatments; and 3. By
participating in a trial you are helping others with the same disease
both now and in the future. Learn more at
