Comprehensive Cancer Control Program
Colorectal Cancer Program
Eastern Idaho Public Health District’s Comprehensive Cancer Control Program works to increase community awareness of all aspects of cancer including: prevention, early detection, screening guidelines, treatment, and survivorship. This is accomplished through partnership development, media campaigns, healthcare provider education, worksite campaigns, and community-based programs and events. Major areas of focus include colorectal cancer and skin cancer.
The colorectal cancer program strives to increase awareness of the disease and the importance of prevention and early detection through screening procedures. It is primarily an education based program. It is promoted to healthcare professionals and also in worksites, church groups, and the community.

Eastern Idaho Public Health District is proud to be a part of two great community partnerships:
Eastern Idaho Chronic Disease Partnership
Comprehensive Cancer Alliance of Idaho
The Eastern Idaho Chronic Disease Partnership is a group of healthcare professionals who main focus is reducing the burden of chronic diseases on individuals, families and the community. The Partnership meets every other month and sponsors both professional development and community-based events. If you or anyone you know is interested in participating in this group, please contact Mimi Taylor at (208) 533-3151.
||The Comprehensive Cancer Alliance for Idaho (CCAI) is a partnership between many dedicated individuals and organizations from healthcare and professional organizations, cancer-related and other non-profit organizations, and individuals touched by cancer. The Alliance is working to reduce the number of preventable cancers and decrease late stage diagnosis of treatable and survivable forms of cancer by improving screening rates in Idaho and to improve the quality of life of Idahoans impacted by cancer.
CCAI was formed to achieve its goals through the development and implementation of an Idaho Comprehensive Cancer Strategic Plan. http://www.ccaidaho.org/
