The Northwest Georgia Regional Cancer Coalition, Inc. is a collaboration of fifteen counties in Northwest Georgia whose vision is to build a model of comprehensive rural cancer control. Our mission is to develop programs of excellence in cancer-related education, communications, prevention, early detection and screening, treatment, and research in this region. We believe prevention is a key element to reducing cancer risk, but unfortunately, not everyone is aware of steps to take towards cancer prevention and screening. We aim to provide the entire community with cancer screening guidelines and risk-reducing education, as well as provide appropriate screenings and healthcare access to our underserved populations.
