Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Cancer Institute as part of the CDC’s Prevention Research Network, the 4CNC is one of 10 centers nationwide that comprise the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN). One of CDC’s expectations is that these centers build their research on the knowledge base created by the systematic reviews and evidence-based recommendations in the Guide to Community Preventive Services.
The UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention administers 4CNC. Our team includes UNC faculty and staff from the School of Nursing, Gillings School of Global Public Health, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.
