Compelling examples of how cancer registry data are used to improve public health are showcased in the CDC-NPCR’s annual Success Stories. Presented as posters, these stories highlight the innovative ways central cancer registries from across the country use data to help fight cancer. The posters have been organized into four groups with a quiz for each group. Pass the complimentary quiz and earn CE credit!
The CDC-funded National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) is a population-based surveillance system of cancer registries established in 1992. NPCR supports the collection of high-quality data by central cancer registries through funding, technical assistance, and the development of software for collecting and processing data. Through NPCR, CDC supports central cancer registries in 46 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Pacific Island Jurisdictions, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
