First Anniversary of New War on Cancer Marks Many Advances
Date:7/21/2009

eness of ensuring that all people can navigate through the health care system, promoted by the National Call to Action, is also prominent in the ongoing national discussions about health care reform.

Canyon Ranch Institute, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and the four most recent U.S. Surgeons General launched the National Call to Action on Cancer Prevention and Survivorship in Washington, D.C. on July 23, 2008. Numerous other collaborators were involved in developing the National Call to Action and many more have since joined the National Call to Action community.

Even with the many significant advances made by the National Call to Action community over the past 12 months, a great deal of focus, determination, and support in cancer prevention and survivorship efforts are still needed in order to fully reach the four goals of the National Call to Action, which are to:

  • Empower Healthy Lifestyles to Prevent Cancer
  • Apply What We Know About Cancer Screening and Early Detection to All People
  • Ensure That All People Can Navigate Through the Health Care System
  • Provide Survivorship Care Plans and Systems of Support for All Cancer Survivors.
