NCI - Division of Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences, Centers of Excellence in Cancer Communication Research (CECCR)

The goal of the CECCR initiative is to catalyze major advances in cancer communication by facilitating growth in knowledge about cancer communication, translating theory and programs into practice, and training health communication scientists focused on cancer communication research. The unique transdisciplinary efforts of the five centers will result in new knowledge and techniques from communicating complex health information to the public with potential for achieving reductions in the US cancer burden.
