About NEFCCC

to educate and empower communities on cancer prevention and treatment

The Northeast Florida Cancer Control Collaborative (NEFCCC) is one of Florida's six regional Cancer Control Collaboratives under the Department of Health's Florida Comprehensive Cancer Control Program. The program is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to support and coordinate comprehensive cancer control activities throughout the state.

The NEFCCC seeks to educate and empower communities on cancer prevention and treatment and collect data to determine the greatest cancer-related needs. The collaborative is a volunteer-based organization comprised of representatives from local cancer clinics and treatment centers, research institutions, nonprofit organizations, health departments and other cancer stakeholders working together to improve or provide cancer prevention, education and services in Northeast Florida.

Members of the collaborative have the opportunity to build partnerships, share and leverage expertise and resources, and educate members to reduce the cancer burden in Northeast Florida.

Oversight and leadership of the NEFCCC is provided by the Health Planning Council of Northeast Florida, a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. The Health Planning Council of Northeast Florida has been addressing the healthcare needs of Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, St. Johns and Volusia counties (Region 4) for more than 40 years under a variety of federal, state and local health planning initiatives. In 1982, the Health Planning Council became one of 11 local health councils mandated by Florida State Statute 408.033 to dedicate resources and expertise to regional health utilization data management, health planning and research, community organizing, and health promotion and awareness programs.

The NEFCCC is currently supported by funding from the Florida Department of Health Cancer Control Program through a grant to the Health Planning Council of Northeast Florida. Visit www.hpcnef.org  for more information about the Health Planning Council.
