With MCCPCN technical and administrative support, our incredibly dedicated and talented work group members — each of whom volunteers their time — meet regularly, usually monthly, to move their goals forward. Work groups identify a project that specifically addresses a strategy in the state plan on an annual basis, and their energy, enthusiasm and engagement keep our state plan from just being another book on a shelf. If you’re interested in learning more about any of the following projects, or think you might like to join a work group, please contact us here: https://app.smartsheet.com.

- The Survivorship Work Group has recently determined that a navigation tool for newly diagnosed survivors would make the greatest impact.
