The Communications Committee is to provide statewide oversight of communications, promotional materials, press releases, etc. related to the NYSCC. The committee members work with the objective of informing members of the NYSCC and others interested in cancer control of activities, initiatives, opportunities, and best practices that are occurring throughout New York State. The Communications Committee will use the NYSCC website, the NYSCC Facebook page, e-blasts, the NYSCC Chronicle, etc. to reach interested parties.
