CDC Division for Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC) – The Breast Cancer Disparities Learning Community is made possible by the funding and support of DCPC. DCPC staff have been involved in every facet of the learning community, providing ASTHO and demonstration states alike with research, expert advice, and technical assistance during in-person and virtual convenings of the learning community to ensure that demonstration states and their stakeholders utilize the most up to date research, analytic approaches, and interventions in their work.

NACDDNational Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) – NACDD is a non-profit public health organization committed to serve the chronic disease program directors of each state and U.S. jurisdiction. Founded in 1988, NACDD connects more than 6,000 chronic disease practitioners to advocate for preventive policies and programs, encourage knowledge sharing and develop partnerships for health promotion. The CDC Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, NACDD and ASTHO are working together under a new cooperative agreement to support state health departments to mobilize data resources, strengthen partnerships, and implement evidence-based interventions to eliminate breast cancer disparities. This initiative, entitled the “Reducing Breast Cancer Disparities: Data to Action Learning Community,” continues the incredible work accomplished during the ASTHO Breast Cancer Disparities Learning Community that began in 2015.

Esri has been a key partner whose work has ensured that states are equipped with the tools and resources they need to identify geographic disparities by translating data into maps that facilitate collaboration and data-driven decision-making. Esri provides all demonstration states with ArcGIS software and regularly provide technical assistance on GIS and epidemiologic analysis, such as through their ‘Bridging the Breast Cancer Divide’ Story Map and the Learn ArcGIS Lesson ‘Map Breast Cancer Differences by Ethnicity’, where users can map mortality rates and risk factors and uncover the disproportionate impacts of breast cancer across American communities.
