To improve cancer outcomes in Louisiana by expanding residents’ access to cancer prevention, screening and standard of care treatment.


  • Supporting the consistent adoption and spread of cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment best practices
  • Creating Louisiana Cancer Care Collaborative to secure stakeholder commitment and enable fundraising for clinical cancer initiatives


The Collaborative will initially focus on two interventions that are achievable and can demonstrate improvements and value for Louisiana residents, payers and providers:

  • Colorectal cancer screening initiative to reduce associated mortality
  • Breast cancer treatment initiative to improve outcomes and reduce treatment variation.

The Collaborative will launch these initial interventions in the first year, refine/enhance approaches in the second, and demonstrate results to support longer term planning in the third, securing funding throughout.
