The APHA Cancer Forum comprises a diverse, multidisciplinary group of professionals representing academia, federal, state and local health departments, private and non-profit organizations engaged in cancer control efforts ranging from discovery to delivery.
Our mission is to:
- Create a focus on cancer as a public health issue within the APHA that will engage existing and new members active in cancer prevention and control activities ranging from education to practice, policy, research and surveillance.
- Enable cross-disciplinary interaction that integrates public health principles, engages researchers and practitioners and advances population-level knowledge and practice relevant to cancer prevention and control, from basic science to population science.
