Cancer Prevention and Control Programs for State Territorial and Tribal Organizations - NCCCP

Grants and Contracts Details


Project Abstract The University of Kentucky (UK) Research Foundation submits this application to opportunity CDC- RFA-DP22-2202: Cancer Prevention and Control Programs for State, Territorial, and Tribal Organizations. Our application includes two of Kentucky’s (KY) flagship CDC-funded cancer prevention and control programs: Program 2-National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP), and Program 3-National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR). Both programs have a long history of success at UK since their inception at CDC. The Kentucky Department of Public Health (KDPH) designates UK as the designated bona fide agent to receive the NCCCP grant and state law designates Kentucky Cancer Registry and receive the NPCR grant. Dr. Pamela Hull serves as the Principal Investigator (PI) for the Program 2-NCCCP, and Dr. Eric Durbin serves as the PI for Program 3-NPCR. Since the two programs must be submitted under a single combined application, Dr. Hull and Dr. Durbin collaborate together as Multi-PIs, and Dr. Hull is listed as the Contact PI in the application system. Both programs collaborate closely with KY’s third flagship program, KY Women’s Cancer Screening Program (National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program), administered in the KY Department of Public Health. The need for all three flagship programs in KY is high, given that KY ranks 1st among states for both the highest all-site cancer incidence and the highest all-site cancer mortality, with significant geographic disparities in Appalachian and rural areas and significant racial disparities among Black Kentuckians and high poverty rates. Program 2-NCCCP Summary: The purpose of the KY Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (KCCCP) is to decrease cancer burden and disparities in KY. KCCCP staff facilitate and support the KY Cancer Consortium (KCC), a multi-sectoral coalition comprised of 100+ organizations, to develop and implement the KY Cancer Action Plan (KY CAP). In the KCCCP work plan, KCC partners will utilize data from KCR and other sources to set, implement, and monitor progress of KY CAP objectives; and they will implement both population-wide and healthy equity-focused/tailored evidence-based interventions focused on the priorities selected based on data and stakeholder input: 1) Primary Prevention: Tobacco Treatment, 2) Early Detection and Screening: Lung Cancer Screening, 3) Health and Wellbeing of Cancer Survivors, and 4) Health Equity: Appalachian, Rural and Black populations. The long-term expected outcomes are improved quality of life among cancer survivors, decreased cancer risk and cancer incidence through primary prevention, and ultimately decreased mortality rates, as well as reduced disparities in incidence and mortality.
