NCC is a collaboration of state and local government, non-profit organizations, health, medical, and business leaders, the research community, cancer survivors, caregivers, and advocates. This coalition was formed to design and oversee the comprehensive cancer control plan for Nevada. Comprehensive cancer control is based on the idea that people and organizations working together to pool resources and coordinate efforts can effectively increase the prevention of cancer, and ultimately reduce the burden of this devastating disease.
