Southeast Florida Cancer Control Collaborative

The Southeast Florida Cancer Control Collaborative (SFCCC) is a voluntary organization made up of representatives from health care providers, community organizations, advocacy groups and others interested in networking and education related to cancer control (see Partner Organizations). The southeast region includes Broward, Indian River, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties.

The SFCCC was established in 2001 with funding from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through a cooperative agreement with the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Currently, SFCCC is one of the regional cancer collaboratives in Florida coordinated by the Florida Department of Health’s Comprehensive Cancer Control Program.

Mission Statement

The SFCCC is dedicated to improve access to cancer care and to decrease the burden of cancer through a united effort by the promotion of education, advocacy, and research for the people of Southeast Florida.
