NCC's Policy Recommendations Attract Attention

07 July, 2022

Back in February of 2022 NCC got bold.

The Biden Administration released their new iteration of the Cancer Moonshot, and we got excited about the opportunities. We knew, though, that the last Moonshot was focused on innovative treatments. What we know will help move the needle in Nevada is more than that -- it's policy, systems and environmental changes to help people prevent cancer, live healthier lives, and access health care to find cancers earlier when they're easiest to treat.

And we said that. Out loud.

NCC drafted an opinion article outlining why policy changes were so vital to reducing the burden of cancer in Nevada and improving outcomes. We submitted to Nevada Current, a statewide news outlet focused on Nevada and policy issues.
