The Surveillance Subcommittee is comprised of individuals who are interested in improving the ability of reporting sources such as hospitals and physician offices to report new cancer cases in a timely and accurate manner, as required by law, and using the data to direct interventions and evaluate progress toward “A cancer-free future for all Ohioans”.
Goals & Objectives:
- Enhance the Quality and Reporting of Cancer Incidence Data and Increase the Dissemination and Use of Data for Cancer Prevention and Control
I've been cancer free for two years and six months. What a miracle! I believe an important part of my recovery is having a positive attitude. Since there is only a 1% survival rate with pancreatic cancer, it would be easy to feel sorry for myself and wallow in fear. But life is short, and I thank God every day that I am alive and cancer free.
