Join us January 15th as we discuss how to use data to make a local impact.  The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Research to Reality January cyber-seminarwill highlight State Cancer Profiles. This resource is part of Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. and is supported by the NCI and CDC.  The State Cancer Profiles Web site provides a system to identify the cancer burden in a standardized manner in order to motivate action, integrate surveillance into cancer control planning, and expose health disparities.  The available Interactive graphics and maps provide visual support for deciding where to focus cancer control efforts.  Antoinette Percy-Laurry will provide an overview of the tool, highlight recently added features and measures, and describe how the tool can be used by cancer control researchers and practitioners.

We will also be joined by Amanda Raftery and Wendy Noe who will share Indiana’s experience in using State Cancer Profiles at the state and local levels.  The data from the tool was used to inform the development and implementation of cancer control plans and programs.  Ms. Noe’s and Ms. Raftery’s presentations provide a practical example of how the tool could be applied in your own state, community, or organizational planning and implementation efforts.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Navigate the State Cancer Profiles website.
  • Understand how State Cancer Profiles data and resources could be used to inform cancer control planning at a national, state, and local level.
  • Describe one example of how a state and local coalition have used the tool in their communities.
