The Cancer Prevention Coalition (CPC), which opened its national office in Chicago in July 1994, is a unique nationwide coalition of leading independent experts in cancer prevention and public health, together with citizen activists and representatives of organized labor, public interest, environmental, and women’s health groups. The Coalition has about 100 local offices in the U.S., as well as international offices.
Our goal is to reduce escalating cancer rates through a comprehensive strategy of outreach, public education, advocacy, and public policy initiatives to establish prevention as the nation’s foremost cancer policy.
Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., Founder of the Coalition, is an expert on the causes and prevention of cancer.
