Florida Screen For Life Public Policy and Promotion Advisory Group
The mission of the CRCCP Public Policy and Promotion Advisory Group is to achieve policy, systems, and environmental changes in order to help Florida attain colon cancer control goals. The advisory group strengthens DOH colon cancer prevention and control efforts by facilitating communication between the health department and policy leaders in health and social service organizations, academic institutions, governmental agencies, environment and advocacy groups.
The advisory group will serve as the forum for the community, patients, and providers to coordinate efforts and provide input and direction on policy that positively impacts colorectal cancer control and prevention efforts.
