At the heart of Michigan Cancer HealthLink are the Cancer Action Councils (CACs): groups of community members and leaders who use their local knowledge to improve the lives of cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers in their communities.
What do CACs do?
- Learn more about the ways in which cancer affects communities in Detroit and Wayne County.
- Participate in conversations with cancer researchers about research that can benefit Detroit and Wayne County.
- Gain skills in partnering with cancer researchers to develop and fund projects and programs.
- Address cancer-related health needs in their communities.
