Oregon Partnership for Cancer Control

The Oregon Partnership for Cancer Control (OPCC) is a coalition of individuals and organizations working to reduce the burden of cancer in Oregon. OPCC was formed to develop and implement the Oregon Comprehensive Cancer Plan.

We are a vibrant partnership organization providing many opportunities to get involved. Our active committees focus on particular topics or areas of cancer to identify and address the most pressing issues in prevention, survivorship, early detection and policy. All meetings are open and can be attended in person or on the phone. Join us!

Committees

OPCC's committees are where partner organizations work together to implement Oregon's Comprehensive Cancer Plan. Committees meet regularly and are open to anyone with an interest in the goals of the plan.

    • Use data to define disparities;
    • Provide examples of how data can be used for decision-making and policy change; and
