Public Education

The Alliance houses a library of South Carolina specific cancer information for individuals, patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers.

To educate the public on and increase awareness of cancer our volunteers participate in various health fairs throughout the state. If you are interested in being trained as a volunteer for a health fair in your area, or if you are interested in hosting a NKF representative exhibit at an upcoming health fair, please contact us.

We also provide funding opportunities to our workgroups to assist them in implementing the objectives and strategies outlined in the five-year cancer plan.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Public Education
Professional Education
The Alliance offers a variety of professional education opportunities each year. Our workgroups form committees to design and implement our Evidence Academies. The Academies are designed to bring the most up-to-date screenings, treatment options, and survivorship issues to South Carolina's health care providers. Some of our upcoming Academies will address best practices in survivorship/clinical care issues, how to design a successful lung cancer screening program, and a variety of other topics.
Each Fall we host an Annual meeting which highlights all of our accomplishments of the previous year, as well as kicking off our upcoming initiatives. During this meeting we also receive an update on the state cancer plan, our funding opportunities, and updated cancer statistics from the South Carolina Central Cancer Registry.
Patient Education
We began offering Patient Workshops in a variety of locations across the state. These workshops are designed for newly diagnosed and current cancer patients and their caregivers. Through these workshops, we aim to provide information on clinical trials, understanding treatment and survivorship care plans, tips on how to live a healthy lifestyle, and various ways to cope with cancer.
Recently, the Alliance created a library of South Carolina specific cancer information for individuals, patients, caregivers, and health care providers. We also provide funding opportunities to various workgroups who assist them in implementing the objectives and strategies outlined in the five-year cancer plan.
Special thanks to South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and the University of South Carolina's Arnold School of Public Health and our workgroups for assembling this information.

The members of the Alliance are divided into workgroups. These workgroups are responsible for developing, implementing, and evaluating specific projects comprised in the cancer plan.
Currently, the Alliance is made up of
7 workgroups that address breast, cervical, colon, prostate, and lung cancer, policy and advocacy, and health equity.
The Alliance then provides annual funding opportunities to these workgroups to implement their section of the state cancer plan.
