SD Cancer Plan Revision: We Need Your Input!
The SD Cancer Coalition and Comprehensive Cancer Control Program are seeking input from stakeholders on the SD Cancer Plan revision. The SD Cancer Plan was originally published in 2005 and is revised every five years. The plan addresses the goals, priorities, and strategies for reducing the burden of cancer in our state. The current plan outlines efforts through 2020, so now is the time to tackle the important task of updating this statewide plan. To do this, we need your help! We are inviting individuals and organizations to complete a brief feedback survey, using the link below. Your input will help ensure the updated plan continues to be a comprehensive roadmap for reducing the burden of cancer in SD. Please share this survey with your colleagues and networks as appropriate.

Your response is requested by Wednesday, February 19th. We appreciate your assistance on this important endeavor!

As part of the South Dakota Cancer Coalition, the Breast Cancer Task Force convened partners and individuals from across the state to determine how to make measurable impact within the South Dakota Cancer Plan’s priority to increase risk-appropriate screening for breast cancer. With changing guidelines and differing opinions, the group knew there was confusion about when a woman should get screened for breast cancer. To address the situation, the task force created a targeted campaign to remind providers to have the conversation about risk-appropriate guidelines in order to increase the number of women who get screened.
