An invitation to help create Rhode Island's next 5 year cancer prevention and control plan
If you are a survivor or a caregiver, we are writing to ask you to help us by sharing your ideas and suggestions for improvement in the areas of cancer care and survivorship supports. We would like to know about what has worked well for you, and what has challenged you, or presented roadblocks-- what can be improved. Your first-hand knowledge of cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, caregiving, and/or survivorship, and your experiences with the health systems that impact care, are important considerations as we develop this five-year plan to improve prevention efforts and our state’s cancer-related systems of care.

Thank you in advance for sharing your ideas and thoughts with our program. We look forward to creating a five-year plan that includes the ideas and reflects the priorities of those most impacted by cancer. We also hope to promote evidence-based strategies that will reduce the burdens of cancer in our state.
Joint Advocacy Day
The American Lung Association, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, and Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids are joining up to hold a joint advocacy day on Wednesday February 26, 2019 at the RI Statehouse from 2:30-4:30pm. This event will focus on top tobacco evidence-based policies and will allow these organization's partners to advocate as one to protect youth from the dangers of tobacco and vaping. There will also be time to meet with your legislators on the chambor floor. Youth are welcomed but age 13+ is recommended. There is no cost to participate.
