The North Dakota Comprehensive Cancer Program supports the North Dakota Colorectal Cancer Screening Initiative and works closely with the North Dakota Chronic Disease Division on cross-cutting activities.
The Comprehensive Cancer Control Program also utilizes a portion of their annual budget to offer subcontracts for local implementation of the cancer plan priorities and activities. For the last 2 years and current funding year the program has partnered with the ND Chronic Disease Division and the Suicide Prevention Program to supply additional funding for more of the subcontract projects where interests are aligned.
