    Did you know that gynecologic and thyroid cancer are two of twelve cancers that are associated with overweight and obesity?

    • Work with individuals and organizations throughout the state to implement the Maryland Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan​
    • Bring together existing groups and new partners from across the state to collaborate on a common goal: reducing the burden of cancer in Maryland


    The Maryland Cancer Collaborative consists of several workgroups that meet regularly to develop priorities and work on the implementation of the Maryland Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan. Each of the workgroups has identified priority objectives and strategies from the Cancer Plan, which you can view here.

    Examples of recent projects include:

    • A flyer about cancer prevention strategies in the workplace has been drafted for businesses in the Healthiest Maryland Businesses program.
    • The Collaborative has partnered with several organizations to survey Maryland hospitals on their palliative care programs, services, barriers, and needs.
    • The Collaborative has partnered with the Maryland Patient Navigation Network to share best practices and technical assistance in patient navigation.

    The Survivorship Workgroup of the Collaborative released a Guide to Cancer Survivorship Care and Resources for Cancer Patients.  The guide outlines many issues that may impact a cancer patient throughout the cancer survivorship journey, and features lists of resources for cancer patients at various stages of survivorship.  


    Members can be individuals or organizations (such as the Cancer Council, local Cancer Coalitions, American Cancer Society).
    Members can choose to join a committee or can join as corresponding members (to receive email communication/updates).
