Partnerships between MDPH programs, researchers, healthcare providers and nonprofit organizations collect information about cancer, lead quality improvement projects, provide education for health professionals and bring shared messages to the public. Our collaborated efforts focus on reducing cancer risk, incidence and mortality through healthy lifestyles, early diagnosis, and increased access to care. The Department's programs address the impact of tobacco , alcohol , nutrition, and physical activity on cancer prevention, along with environmental and occupational hazards for cancer. Throughout all of our efforts there is an emphasis on reducing disparate health outcomes and unequal access to cancer care.
