Fully Fund the California Cancer Registry
The California Cancer Registry is critically important to cancer research and eliminating gaps in health equity.
- Established in 1985, the California Cancer Registry (CCR) is the largest registry in the nation and is recognized as one of the leading cancer registries in the world.
- The CCR is a vast repository of cancer data that provides vital information to public health officers and researchers.
- With this data, it is possible to determine cancer risk factors and help researchers understand trends in all communities which is critical to understanding health equity.
- With the appropriate, ongoing funding, the registry has the opportunity to implement changes that would provide real time data for researchers and help better connect cancer patients to clinical trials.
Join ACS CAN in calling on the California legislature to reject proposed budget cuts and provide $6.6 million to make the registry whole.
