May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month
We are volunteer professionals from local healthcare facilities, government agencies, community organizations, and advocacy groups. We are concerned community members who know what it means for individuals and families to be touched by cancer. We are united to combat the suffering caused by this disease.
NWFCCC was established in 2001 with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are one of the six Florida Regional Cancer Control Collaboratives operating under the Department of Health’s Florida Comprehensive Cancer Control Program.
Our division serves residents of Bay, Calhoun, Escambia, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Liberty, Leon, Madison, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Taylor, Wakulla, Walton, and Washington Counties.
