What is Expected of me as a Consortium Member?
All Consortium Members agree to the expectations listed below:
- Endorse the Consortium’s Mission: “To reduce the human and economic burden of cancer in New York State.”
- Promote the Consortium and the Cancer Plan by sharing Consortium communications with partner organizations
- Collaborate towards achieving State Cancer Plan objectives by serving on an Action Team, attending Consortium Meetings, and networking with other members in our Member Portal

Joining the Consortium is a way to connect with people across the health care spectrum. I work in an urban setting and while I once thought I’d have nothing in common with someone who works in a rural setting, my participation in the Consortium has opened my eyes to a new way of thinking.
