One Voice Against Cancer
E-Mail: info@ovaconline.org
(see "OVAC Members" for contact information of coalition members)
"One Voice Against Cancer began in January 2000 as a working group of public health organizations dedicated to ensuring that the federal government provides the necessary investments for cancer research and application programs. It has since grown into an effective lobbying coalition on cancer funding that has enabled the community to enhance policymakers’ awareness of the need for substantial increases in essential cancer programs. Lawmakers and federal agencies are asked also to focus efforts on outreach into ethnic minority and other underserved populations, many of which have a higher risk and mortality from various forms of cancer."
