Arkansas Cancer Coalition

Summit History

The Arkansas Cancer Summit is one of ACC’s many well-documented successes and has always been centered on the growth and evolution of the Arkansas Cancer Plan and the partners that make up the Arkansas Cancer Coalition. The Summit provides a time for partners to celebrate, reflect and build new skills and networks. Even though the theme changes annually, Summits typically focus on showcasing advances, gaps, and challenges in cancer control by reviewing the latest data and evidence-based practices.
