Regionalization of cancer control efforts in the u.s.a

International Quarterly of Community Health Education 2(1): 35-49

Regionalization of cancer control efforts in the u.s.a

The Johns Hopkins Oncology Center, one of the first of the nation's twenty-one Comprehensive Cancer Centers, established a cancer control program to mobilize resources to improve patient care and prevent the occurrence of neoplastic diseases. Initial efforts were based on the results of a series of investigations conducted in four communities. Findings from these studies were then converted into a series of programmatic interventions. The strategy included integrated approaches to creating a community education program within the overall effort.
