Our Guiding Principles: We are collaborative, respectful, inventive, and patient-centered. We share resources, a deep sense of commitment, and responsibility for taking action.
Key stakeholders from four organizations joined forces to provide leadership in the development of the Plan’s goals and objectives: the local affiliate of the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen® Great Plains, and two programs based in the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services: the Every Woman Matters Program, and the Nebraska Comprehensive Cancer Control Program which partners closely with NC2 (Nebraska Cancer Coalition).
These statewide partners are joined in planning and implementation activities by a group of highly-dedicated and selfless individuals representing Nebraska’s accredited cancer centers, district and local health departments, hospitals, health centers, collaborating businesses and service organizations, the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and Creighton University, medical clinics and practitioners, non-profit cancer survivorship organizations, individual cancer survivors, family members and volunteers, and the Nebraska Office of Health Disparities and Health Equity.
The Partnership continues to work together to:
- Identify gaps and needs
- Improve the quality of services
- Utilize and build on strengths
- Decrease duplication of efforts
- Streamline processes and increase efficiencies
The Nebraska Breast and Cervical Cancer Advisory Committee provides ongoing recommendations, offering a direct link to cancer control activities occurring across the state.
