Invitation: Stakeholder Input for CDC Proposal for Arizona Cancer Programs

Hello Everyone:

The Arizona Department of Health Services will host an I-link session on Tuesday, February 28, 2012, from 2 – 4 p.m. to provide an overview of the recently released Cancer Prevention and Control Programs Request for Applications (RFA) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  This I-link session will also provide an opportunity for input into the ADHS response and proposal. 

This is a five year competitive grant application to the existing cooperative agreement that funds the Arizona Cancer Registry, Arizona Comprehensive Cancer Control and the Well Woman HealthCheck Program.  This grant opportunity has two new components, including a highly competitive innovative demonstration project.  The grant also includes some focus on policy approaches and health systems changes.  The grant is due March 26, 2012. 

Attached you will find a summary of the RFA.  Visit to view the full RFA and search for CDC-RFA-DP12-1205.
