Colorado receives national achievement awards in cancer prevention and data collection

Congratulations to the Women’s Wellness Connection and the Colorado Central Cancer Registry. Both state Prevention Services Division programs received national achievement awards by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for innovative and effective practices in preventing and tracking cancer.

The Women’s Wellness Connection competed with four other nominated states and received the annual program achievement award for being the most outstanding breast and cervical cancer early detection program in the country. The program provides breast and cervical cancer screening to eligible women at more than 130 sites through the collaborative efforts of multiple statewide providers.

The Colorado Central Cancer Registry received the CDC’s first award of its kind in outstanding program achievement, along with the state of Kentucky. The registry tracks the incidence and mortality of cancer in Colorado residents.
