This webinar series is “centered around” addressing social determinants of health (SDoH) impacting both cancer and tobacco-related health disparities (TRHD) while aligning with at least 3 overarching goals outlined in the National Cancer Plan

Detect Cancers Early
Cancers are detected and treated as early stages, enabling more effective treatment, and reducing morbidity and mortality.

Partner with providers, researchers, and communities at increased risk for cancer to improve screening rates.

Deliver Optimal Care
The healthcare system delivers evidence-based, patient-centered care to all people that prioritizes prevention, reduces cancer morbidity and mortality, and improves the lives of cancer survivors, including people living with cancers.

  • Identify and put into effect best practices for public engagement, communication, and health literacy related to cancer risk, prevention, treatment, and survivorship that are tailored to community needs.

Eliminate Inequities
Disparities in risk factors, cancer incidence, treatment side effects, and mortality are eliminated through equitable access to prevention, screening, treatment, and survivorship care.

  • Tackle inequities that prevent successful outcomes in underserved populations at each step of cancer care, from prevention through survivorship.
  • Engage communities in cancer education and promote structural changes that increase prevention and early detection.

State and local government programs (cancer, other chronic diseases, tobacco prevention/control programs and public health agencies), health systems (cancer centers, hospitals, rural health clinics, federally qualified healthcare centers, health departments) and physician offices (primary care physicians, oncologists, etc.), medical/healthcare associations, academic institutions (including Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy), cancer and other health coalitions, and health plans. Multi-disciplinary Professionals: Physicians, mid-level practitioners (nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists), registered dieticians (RDs), nurse navigators, health educators, patient navigators, community health workers (CHWs), employee health/health promotion professionals as well as nonprofit organizations (NPOs) and community-based organizations (CBOs).
