The Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan (WI CCC Plan) is an integrated effort of public and private partners to develop and implement a statewide approach to cancer control. One priority of the original plan was to increase access to care by reducing economic, geographic, cultural, and systems barriers through the development of “regional partnership networks” dedicated to breaking down local barriers.
The Center for Urban Population Health and the Partnerships for Healthy Milwaukee, with UW Medical Education and Research Committee (MERC) funding, initiated the first network in Wisconsin to provide a forum for those invested in cancer control in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties to collaborate and address the issues of this priority. Initiated in 2006, the network is a forum for multidisciplinary collaboration among health care providers, public health practitioners, researchers, and cancer control advocates to work together to improve the accessibility, quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of cancer care so that our patients and their families can live better lives.
Today the MRCCN member organizations collaborate to maintain this website as a regional resource for you to get connected to the cancer care and support you are looking for.
