Welcome to the New York State Cancer Consortium!

The New York State Cancer Consortium (NYSCC) is a network of individuals and organizations that collaborate to address the cancer burden in New York State. The NYSCC and its members are guided by the strategic plan, the NYS Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan 2012-2017, which outlines objectives and suggested strategies to reduce the burden of cancer in NYS. We hope you use this site to learn more about cancer in New York and to further your own organization's efforts to decrease the cancer burden for all New Yorkers.

Spotlight On!

The NYSCC has launched the New York State Comprehensive Cancer Control Dashboard. This interactive, web-based Dashboard will be used to monitor progress of cancer prevention and control efforts in NYS and to guide organizations working toward cancer prevention and control to areas most in need of intervention. The Dashboard provides information on twenty-four of the health promotion, cancer prevention and early detection indicators identified in the New York State Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan, 2012-2017.
