Note from the director
New name, new website, same mission
Welco me to the first issue of ENGAGE published under our new name, Wisconsin Cancer Collaborative!

We love the way Wisconsin Cancer Collaborative communicates our mission of helping organizations work together to reduce the burden of cancer for everyone in Wisconsin.

To celebrate our new name, we've given our website a major facelift—with more exciting updates to come throughout the spring and summer.

I will be answering questions from members and sharing more details about our new name and website in a special webinar March 12. Please join me!
