The OCCN is comprised of individuals who have a vested interest in creating a future for Oklahoma that is free from preventable cancer deaths and related health disparities. The OCCN has joined forces with representatives from various local, state, and tribal organizations, to develop and support the Oklahoma State Cancer Plan. While all people and cancers are important, the OCCN members currently focus their efforts toward four priority sites including breast; cervical; colorectal; and lung.
Within the OCCN, there are currently four workgroups who work together to develop and implement evidence-based interventions designed to reduce the burden of these four cancers. These workgroups also concentrate on risk reduction strategies (i.e. smoking cessation, HPV vaccination, and obesity/physical activity and nutrition) and crosscutting techniques (i.e. communications; genomics; health disparities; patient-centered care; policy; survivorship; technology; surveillance and epidemiology).
Also, the OCCN Executive Team whose member composition is comprised of the OCCN Chair; Co-Chair; Priority Cancer Workgroup Leads and Co-Leads. These members are responsible for guiding the efforts of the OCCN and developing the 2023-2027 Oklahoma State Cancer Plan. This plan will encompass data-driven evidence-based interventions; strategies; and goals aimed at reducing new cancer rates (incidence) and deaths (mortality) and the disparate effects they have on our most vulnerable Oklahoma populations.
The OCCN meets virtually, bi-monthly on the second Thursday of the month at 9:30 AM-11:00 AM
