The Michigan Cancer Consortium

Michigan's Cancer Plan

In Michigan, and the United States, cancer is the second leading cause of death. It is estimated that over 60,000 Michiganders will get cancer and over 20,000 Michiganders will die from cancer in 2020.

The Cancer Plan for Michigan, 2021-2030, which was developed for all Michiganders, is a strategic plan to reduce the cancer burden in the state. Approximately 82 people participated in the five workgroups that developed the cancer plan. Each workgroup consisted of an average of 15 active participants.

The Michigan Cancer Consortium Board of Directors followed a prioritization process to select five objectives from the 2021-2030 Michigan Cancer Plan. The following five were selected as priorities for the MCC from 2021-2023.  Click each priority for more details.

Decrease % of Michiganders without medical insurance

Reduce tobacco use in adults and adolescents

Reduce the % of breast cancer diagnosed at a late stage

Increase the % of Michigan adults participating in cancer treatment clinical trials

Increase the % of Michigan adults who have ever been diagnosed with cancer who meet the objectives for aerobic physical activity and for muscle-strengthening activity
