Funded by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control, through the Florida Department of Health, the Northeast Florida Cancer Control Collaborative (NEFCCC) seeks to educate and empower communities on cancer prevention and treatment and collect data to determine the greatest cancer-related needs. The NEFCCC will develop plans and perform actions to meet these needs.
