3 Goals of Workgroup 1)Build the capacity of cancer control planners and public health professionals to locate, select, adopt, adapt, implement and evaluate evidence-based cancer prevention program, policies and practices

4 Goals of Workgroup 2)Conduct research and evaluation on models of capacity building and effects of CPCRN capacity building initiatives

17 CBTAT Publications: Mini-grants McCracken JL, Friedman DB, Brandt HM et al. (2013). Findings from the community health intervention program in South Carolina: implications for reducing cancer-related health disparities. J Cancer Educ, 28(3): community-based organizations were awarded $10,000 each to implement NCI evidence-based interventions: Eat for Life, Witness Project, Walking Trail Results showed an increase in physical activity, dietary improvements, and screening participation Collaboration resulted in a common goal of reducing cancer-related health disparities and building greater public health capacity
