The Steering Committee for the Revision of Georgia's Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan wishes to acknowledge the volunteer efforts of many stakeholders in health and cancer control who worked diligently in crafting this revised roadmap for cancer control in Georgia.

Nearly 100 individuals, representing many statewide cancer control organizations and associations embraced the process and participated in this collaborative project. We recognize and salute the dedicated commitment of time and energy that went into many hours of formal and informal meetings, discussions, consultations, and document production over the last year.
As we move into the implementation phase of this process we look forward to the continued
engagement of talent, wisdom, and experience in service to the people of Georgia.
