The first webinar, featuring Priority 4 "Increase HPV vaccine completion," will be held on February 9th from 3-4 PM. Be sure to mark your calendars!

 

Additionally, the WI CCC Program will solicit applications from partners for the 2016 CCC Implementation Grants to support implementation efforts within Priority 9 of the WI CCC Plan, "Increase Access to Quality Cancer Care." 
 

Throughout the year, the WI CCC Program team will also work with a small group of dedicated WI Cancer Council leaders on the 2016 WI Cancer Council Revitalization Process.
