American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

World Cancer Day

February 4 is World Cancer Day, the annual global initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) to build awareness and encourage action in the areas of cancer prevention and access to care.

The Commission on Cancer (CoC), the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), and the National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer (NAPRC) encourage your program to observe World Cancer Day and use it as an opportunity to promote your accreditation. We have developed a series of downloadable posters and social media graphics to help you observe this event within your program and your community. These materials are available to accredited programs at the Marketing Resources link on CoC Datalinks and under Resources in the NAPBC and NAPRC portals.

Additional resources can be found on the World Cancer Day website. If you have questions, please contact coc@facs.org.
