What is the South Carolina Cancer Alliance (SCCA)?
The SCCA is a coalition committed to implementing the state's first comprehensive cancer control plan. Founded in 2003, the SCCA evolved from collaborative efforts to create the plan. It is a voluntary association that offers free membership to organizations and individuals interested in working to reduce the state's cancer burden. The SCCA provides the cancer control community with opportunities to:
· Build new partnerships,
· Improve coordination of resources,
· Develop innovative strategies, and
· Reduce unnecessary duplication of efforts.
How are these priorities supported?
Workgroups and projects have been formed to address cancer plan objectives. Active volunteers across the state meet regularly to work on their respective projects in a coordinated effort to advance the plan.
Who is a part of the SCCA?
Health care organizations, cancer centers, community-based groups, community advocates and volunteers have joined the SCCA. As this coalition evolves, membership continues to grow.
