Dan River Region Cancer Task Force

The Dan River Region Cancer Task Force is a collaboration of community organizations that provides guidance so that cancer control and prevention programs and research are connected and serving the best interest of those living in the region.  The Task Force is a collaborative between the UVA Cancer Center and VCU Massey Cancer Center and has representation from over 20 regional organizations including representatives from healthcare, community based organizations and faith-based organizations.

The Task Force has worked on a number of initiatives of the years. Most recently, they have focused on improving cancer survivorship, colorectal cancer screening, radon and lay community education. 

Cancer Task Force Meetings

The Cancer Task Force meets on the last Monday of every month from 12:30pm – 1:00pm, followed by our monthly Living Well program series for all community members.  Participants are encouraged to meet in person but can also participate virtually.
