Alabama continues to build on its very successful history of colon cancer control. Comprehensive cancer control has been defined as an integrated approach to reducing cancer incidence, morbidity, and mortality through prevention, early detection, treatment, and palliation.
This comprehensive approach involves systematic assessment of state cancer concerns to ensure that important priorities are identified, resources are used efficiently, gaps in education and services are identified, and duplication of efforts is avoided.
Lifestyle choices will be the health focus for the 21st century. Peer education, community-based interventions, and better access to preventive care will help Alabamians make better lifestyle choices and help the state continue to make progress in the battle against cancer.
